Copies of plans of several parts of Northamptonshire, chiefly from those made by Richard Davis for the Commissioners of Land Revenue in 1787, Nichols's Leicestershire, etc.: probably done by Samuel Deacon about 1810-20: but he has filled large blank leaves with a considerable series of tables of general and English Chronology and lists of public officials in England (Bishops, Judges, and the like), but no part of it is important or original work. The latest dates of additions is 1842: there are a few printed pieces.
