TitleMiscellaneous books
DescriptionThe Fairbanks kept drafts or copies of the books of reference they supplied with large plans. These books do not seem to have been kept in any special order, and as the general rule with them is, one book, one survey, they have been grouped under places and subjects, and numbered straight through, 1-546. They are indexed in the same way as the Field Books: the main card for each plan contains references to any Miscellaneous Books made to go with it. They all deal with places included in the List of Parishes (page 19); and amongst them are the 'records of Josiah Fairbank as agent for the Crown manor of Eckington, consisting of surveys, reports, timber accounts, and twelve volumes of letters, 1813-1843.

Grouped according to parishes and engineering subjects, and numbered in one long sequence. They consist mainly of reference books to the plans, and surveys of districts for rate, tithe etc.
