Hi Phil - got it at last!  Thanks for this. Was it linked to any topic?  I can't remember the context - but will add to the relevant posting if you let me know.

Hello Kate,The map,from Butcher's survey of Stanford of about 1620 was to do with what was built between Silver lane and Ironmongers street.This map shows a Printing office in those days.The poem of the Stamford Scutcheon comes from the same book and although quite rude at the beginning I thought very interesting.By the way the pics of the Boon family are fantastic my sister was a friend of Mary at the High School,so I will forward the pics to her.KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!!.Regards Phil.

The map you have illustrated is the frontispiece of Harrod's 1785 History of the town.  Although based on Speed's map of about 1610 it has been modified considerably and essentially shows the town in the late C18th.

Peck's 1727 'Annals of Stamford' has his version of the Speed map - again altered from the original.  As far as I recall, Butcher's Survey of Stamford (1st Edn 1646, new edn 1717) has no map.

Knipe's map of the town in the 1830s appears to be the first reliable map of the town.  There are C18 manuscript maps of Stamford Baron ...
