Deeds from 1790s with references to land divisions

Posted: 1495658247000
Classification: Deed
I am transcribing some of my ancestors' deeds from Litchfield County dating from the 1780s and 1790s. They often reference Lot numbers and Tiers of land such as the following: "two pieces of land lying in said Washington. The first piece containing about two acres of land be the same more or less, beginning at the Northwest Corner of the 23rd LOT in the EAST TIER of the WEST HUNDRED so called being a heap of stones eight rods from a rock with a heap of stones on it, being a corner of the WEST TIER" I have not been able to find any maps from that time period that show these lots and tiers laid out so that I can locate these lands more precisely.
If anyone has seen such a map, or to a narrative description of such divisions of land, please reply to this thread with source information.
