LyesThere were at least two fields called Lyes shown in 1840 map. One was the field numbered 193 and 689  in the 1794 map . The other Lyes identified in 1840 was not shown in the 1794 map but was to the right of this section and was physically in Ston Easton but was part of Emborough.  The churchwarden and poor law records show the Beaumont family were paying the rates to Chewton Mendip but they were living in Ston Easton.
 Inmead  was between Lyes and Chewton Fields farm. Maltmead was close by and  Whitemead was on the south side of Chew Down. The Hippisleys were the major land owners in Ston Easton and Emborough but Lyses was owned by the Waldegraves.
Lyes was probably part of several farms. The 1766 ledgers show it was grouped with Eldons Stump and occupied by the Palmers.
