Birmingham in Warwickshire, 1695

 Morden

Robert Morden's map of Warwickshire first appeared in Camden's Britannia, published in 1695. For the most part it is a copy of the 'Anonymous' map, first published in 1603. The majority of the place-names now have their modern spelling. This includes Birmingham, but an alternative form 'Bromicham' is also given.
