Below we have a variety of maps from different periods. It is amusing to see some of the variation in spellings and that may have been due to -
the surveyor misunderstood the name given to him by a local
the spelling was different in those days and/or spelling was quite variable anyway
the draftsman couldn’t decipher the surveyors writing
the etcher, working in reverse to make the printing plate, made a mistake or couldn’t decipher the text.
