English Jurisdictions 1851
This is part of the Familysearch site that I never knew existed. Go to http://maps.familysearch.org/ Enter a place name to access information about parish jurisdictions, including parish register and bishop’s transcripts dates, divisions such as county, civil registration district, probate court, diocese, rural deanery, poor law union, hundred and province. You can even see a map of other parishes within a certain distance, from ¼ mile up to 15 miles.
