Year group: 1600s

Speede’s map of the North and East Riding of Yorkshire (1610)

The coats of arms included on this map are those of the Earls of Richmond and Holderness.

There are also plans of Hull and Richmond (note these are not part of the overlay on the base map).

(Early maps such as this tend to be far less accurate than their modern counterparts.  It’s been overlaid onto our base map to give you a very general comparison of past & present, but should not be taken as a completely accurate representation of the landscape at that time)
