This map comes from a guide book of the English Counties and the arms are those of the Right Hon the Earl of Salisbury and of the City of Hereford - described as "The Arms of Hertford". This would seem to be a "printer's error" as the Hereford map includes the arms of St Albans labelled as "The Arms of Hereford." [Details of map from Printed Maps of Hertfordshire.]

For the parish of Sandridge the map shows: Sandridge and Nomans Land
