InmeadThe Beaumont family were paying the rates to Chewton Mendip for Inmead and Lyse according to the churchwarden and poor law records. The extract from the 1794 map  shows it as rough pasture on the border of Ston Easton  and Emborough. Maltmead and   Whitemead are other examples of what were probably examples of former medieval common fields with specialists functions.
Inmead, Lyses and Maltmead were all on the north side of Chew Down colse to fields owne by Hippisleys.  Inmead may have been part of several farms but it was close to Chewton Fields farm and was part of that farm in 1840 when it was occupied by John Robbins.
