|Preston and the Northwest: 300 years ago: Survey of roads, towns and people||
In 1952 a bundle of papers were discovered at Townley Hall. Amongst these papers were "strip maps" showing parts of Lancashire in the 17th century. Many historians/authors have examined these maps trying to date them and to discover the mapmaker. Lancashire Archives attributes them Dr. Richard Kuerden and Bill Shannon, in his "Seventeenth-Century Restored: Life and work of Dr Richard Kuerden" agrees. Geoffrey Binns' research came up with another possible mapmaker, Gregory King, and produced a booklet giving arguments in his favour. The booklet was never completed in his lifetime but most of the extant document can be viewed here
