Chris,

I suspect you're correct and the 'B' does not means 'board' rather than
'boundary'.
The Boards in question being Boards of Guardians who administered the
Poor Law Acts from the 1830s onwards. This probably explains Vince's 
late manor boundary markers.

I don't know the area so don't know what 'CC' & 'D' mean but several
parishes often pooled resources. So you or your enquirer probably need
to do a bit of delving in the accounts of the bodies than ran the Poor
Law in that part of the world.

We've had a query about what appears to be a boundary marker carved
into a stone in a wall (in Rode on the Somerset/Wiltshire border). The
stone reads "C.C.B | D.B" but the initials mean little to us (ie neither
parish or turnpike trust names fit). It is just possible that the county
border ran through here at some date although the wall into which it was
built is probably dated to 1824 (the mark could obviously be earlier and
reused, or later and carved on!) and the county boundary was not here on
the 1840 tithe map - although a bit to the south aligns on it, hence the
suggestion.

Any ideas? We thought the fact that both sides had a B might suggest
Board but that doesn't explain what the D or C C might be - or which
Board.
