Many of the small holdings on this map are in the area known as the Upper Maescoed. Upper Maescoed originally an open Common that was, over a long period of time, subject to piecemeal enclosure. The properties were mostly copyholds held for ‘lives’ by ancient custom of the Manor. They are recorded by copy in the rolls of the Court Baron. Many were included in the 1920 Estate Sale of the Marquees of Abergavenny.
