Yonder Paddock

A field of the Newton Surmaville Estate


Yonder Paddock (Parcel 839), was a small field forming part of the Newton Surmaville Estate that was not leased out as Newton Farm. 'Yonder' is an archaic dialect word simply meaning farther removed, or 'over there'.

At the time of the 1846 Tithe Apportionment, Yonder Paddock was owned and occupied by George Harbin. It was recorded as pasture for grazing livestock and measured 3a 2r 16p.

Yonder Paddock (Parcel 839) was bordered on the north by Newton Farmhouse (Parcel 834) and Home Orchard (Parcel 842). To the east it was bounded by Six Acre Orchard (Parcel 838), to the south by Garland's Coppice (Parcel 825) and to the west by Middle Paddock (Parcel 840).
