A plot of land located immediately west of Robin Hood's Tump in Tilstone Fearnall, Cheshire, was known as 'Robin Hood Croft' in 1840.

The Tump is situated on the northwest corner of Vale Road at the point where the road turns west, c. 115 m south of Nantwich Road (A51). The Croft, immediately west of the Tump, on the north side of Vale Road, figures in the 1840 tithe award for the township of 'Alphraham' (i.e. Alpraham) in the county of Bunbury as 'Robin Hood Croft, with John Tollemache, Esq., as landowner, Richard Lamb as occupier, nothing listed for 'State of Cultivation', but its area cited as 3 roods and 20 perches (3541 m2).[1] We have indicated both plots on the adapted map detail included in the image gallery below.
