The name Linmear was on the 1762 Map. A copy of that was made in 1766. I photographed it a few years ago on a poor camera (must do it again sometime). On here the Kingsland site was 'North Mead' seen in green on the right. A - B approximates to Recreation Road to the junction of Sundon Rd with Parkside Drive. So Short Linmere Furlong approximates to Bloomsbury Gardens, Long Linmear Furlong to Hawthorn Park School across to Elm Park Close / Enfield.
