had a great day today, an amazing house and it now has a fantastic owner!!! thank you for allowing us to help, also take lots of pics and lovely to meet you wink

A big thank you to all the gang who did such a great job yesterday - it would have taken me weeks to do as much work on my own! One of our amazing finds yesterday was this piece of a map of Jerusalem, under 4 coats of limewash and one of wallpaper. Can anyone date it or identify where it might have come from? It measures about 2ft x 1ft.

You can see that the letter 'J'(as in Jesus) appears in several parts of the map. I could be wrong, but think if this map was any earlier than Victorian the J would have been written more like an 'I'.

Most of the info on the map seems to relate to the trial of Jesus. I'd guess (depending on size) that it was probably a supplement from a newspaper or magazine. Probably no more than 100 years old.

I answered a post on Rocks thread before but thought I may as well duplicate here unless anyone sees it.

It may already have been posted or mentioned elsewhere on the thread, so sorry if so...

It was actually sold after the auction in November 2010, rather than at the drop of the hammer for around 40,000. It's an interesting place, just in the wrong area I feel.

Interestingly, see the below links;

Conveyance Dated 1929
Vesting Deed Dated 1929
Conveyance Dated 1958
Conveyance Dated 1996
Death Certificate
Epitome of Title
Deed of Appointment

Probably best right click and save as. Some of them are quite large files.

That's an interesting picture - looks like it might show (on the left) the barn (dated 1704 I think someone said?) that was demolished. Could the picture be post-war? The steeple on St. Luke's looks like the one that was put up after war damage, but the rest of the buildings look older somehow.
