Below is a diagram, which was part of the 1757 Deed of Timothy Stedham (grandson of Timen Stiddem) to Thomas Shipley. Note the absence of Timen's fourth daughter, Ingebor, who only recieved "one steer and a cow" as part of her allotment in her father's will, so was not included in the diagram with her siblings, who held partial interest in their father's land.
