Newlands

Newlands is the name of several  fields or farms and suggests that it as land that was enclosed from either common land but more often from ‘waste land’. Large parts of the  Middlesex  tithing fell into that category.  Approximately 40 acres of open common grazing ground was enclosed by John Hippisleys  IV in 1609 and was known as Newlands from then on. The 1794 map shows a few detached fields called Newlands corner which may have been the same land. A Newlands Farm is situated in Green Ore.
