I rooted up this website it is excellent stuff if you wish to investigate old Anglo Saxon charters and see how the land was a long time ago when a tree or a pool was what distinguished a place:http://www.langscape.org.uk/index.html

Jeepers, thank YOU Mearcsteper! This kind of thing has proven to be a right ēarspīn and no mistake in writing my kiddies' book, partly because it is set before King Edward brought the shrieval system north of the Thames.  Then there's the conundrum of what they did for parishes and how these did and didn't follow other land boundaries.

Thanks 8)  again.
