The Oulton, Rothwell habitat of my Barber ancestors c.1786 
See lower left corner for property etc.

Locator for Hollin Hall from 1786 map

**omas Barber of Hollin Hall was a half-brother of my ancestor Mary Barber [b.1753]

The wavy, nearly vertical line to the right of the buildings later became a turnpike road
(now A642) connecting Leeds and Wakefield.

Approximate area displayed = (One mile N-S) x (0.75 miles E-W)

The sketch was drafted by a Rev. Mercer, circa 1950
presumably transcribing data from an historic tithe map.
