Table 4.

Owners of the Pul Eliya Old F ield, 1889, 1890, 1954 (Fo r comparison with Map E)
The left hand colu mn s hows the sections of the Upper Fie ld in terms of categories of the ‘tradit ional s ystem’.
The 1889 colu mn fits the 1889 ta x lis t to the traditional s chema.
The 1880 colu mn is based on the 1880 ta x list, but is s hown to fit the pres ent -day strip arrange ment (is saraval) rather than the traditional s chema of 18
pangu.
The 1954 colu mn is based on the Ve l Vidāne’s plot list (Table 6) and is shown to have a one -to-one correlation with the 1890 c olumn, barring some
very s light changes in the area figures.
The next co lu mn to the right repeats the left-hand column but inc ludes the modification resulting fro m the introduction of a ‘e xt ra pangu’ (s ee pp. 207
f.).
