The final inclosure by Act of Parliament did not take place until 1840-1. (fn. 34) The award (1844) divided 4,051 acres amongst 332 proprietors. (fn. 35) The distribution of common rights was more even than in the other peat-fen parishes of theIsle, approaching nearly to that of marshland parishes like those near Wisbech, where minute subdivision of the land had taken place as far back as the later Middle Ages. Only six Whittlesey proprietors received more than 100 acres. These wereAlice Hemmant (190 acres), the trustees of William Blades Fawn (180), the trustees of the Ladies Horatia Elizabeth and Ida Anna Waldegrave, in respect of their rights as ladies of the manors (130), James Read 'the farmer' (123), Alice Haynes(112½), and James and Elizabeth Ainger (102 acres). Thirteen other proprietors received between 50 and 100 acres each. Bassinghally, Church, Coates, Eastrea, Lattersey, and Stonald Fields are mentioned in the award, all of which are marked at thepresent day on the 1/25,000 Ordnance Survey map. It was stated that of the 4,051 acres partitioned, 892 were in respect of freehold and 3,159 of copyhold property.From: 'North Witchford Hundred: Whittlesey', A History of the County of Cambridge and the Isle of Ely: Volume 4: City of Ely; Ely, N. and S.
