Censives, Paris, France (According to Plans Terriers), 18th Century

Author(s):
Description:
This polygon shapefile contains the censives (territories ruled by a lord) in Paris, France during the 18th century. Source data were gathered from terrier plans (record systems for property holdings) kept by landlords. From the Middle Ages until the Revolution, land in Paris was divided between many lordships. Lords, or seigneurs, granted tenure for plots of land (censives) to owners through imposition of a annual fee (cens). Censives granted certain rights to the seigneur, such as rights of land transfer and political authority over roads and courts.The ALPAGE programme aims to provide collaborative tools for the Humanities and Social Sciences and for Information Communication Technology (ICT) allowing for the development of research about the Parisian urban area. This aim is achieved by means of a GIS that includes cadastral and historical layers.
