News:

TheGenealogist has just released the Lloyd George Domesday Survey records for Tower Hamlets which cover land owners and occupiers in 1910-1915 with over 91,500 individuals recorded. These now join the previously released data books and their detailed associated maps for other parts of London, bringing the total number to nearly half a million individuals within this record set. 

This new release is the latest phase of TheGenealogist’s extensive ongoing project to digitise over 94,500 Field Books, each having hundreds of pages, and linking them to large scale IR121 annotated OS maps which are now viewable in TheGenealogist’s powerful Map Explorer tool.

The records, which are sourced from The National Archives, were originally compiled by the Valuation Office in a period that stretched from 1910-1915 in response to Lloyd George’s government passing the People’s Budget 1909/1910. 

This new release covers records made of property ownership and occupation in Bethnal Green East, Bethnal Green North, Bethnal Green South, Bethnal Green West, Bow, Bromley, Christchurch, Limehouse, Mile End Centre, Mile End East, Mile End New Town, Mile End North, Mile End South West, Norton Folgate, Old Artillery Ground, Poplar North, Poplar South, Ratcliff, Saint Botolph without Aldgate, Saint George in the East, Shadwell, Wapping and Whitechapel.

Family historians can use these records to:

  • Find ancestors who owned or occupied property in the Tower Hamlets area of London
  • See the outlines of their houses on large scale maps from the time
  • Fade between historic and modern maps to see how the environment has changed
  • Check details of properties in the neighbourhood by clicking the red pins
  • Locate an address from your research down to a specific house on the map
  • Search by name, parish and street to uncover ancestors’ property in 1910-1915

Complementing the maps on TheGenealogist’s Map Explorer are the accompanying Field Books which provide detailed information relative to the valuation of each property, including the valuation assessment number, map reference, owner, occupier, situation, description and extent.

For family historians looking for ancestors’ homes just before the First World War in the Tower Hamlets area of London this record set is invaluable.

New Searchable War Memorials online

Disclosure: Please note this post contains affiliate links.

 

News:

TheGenealogist has just released over 658 War Memorials with 75,973 new individuals. This means that there are now a total of over 568,000 individuals that are fully searchable in TheGenealogist’s War Memorial records.

Top left: The State War Memorial – Western Australia, Perth Kings Park Cenotaph; top right: Leicester Cathedral; bottom: One of over 1,000 memorial plaques from tree-lined avenues in Kings Park, Perth, Western Australia

 

The new data will allow the family history researcher to discover:

  • close to 76,000 individuals recorded on War Memorials
  • 658 War Memorials from England, Australia, New Zealand and Canada

 

These fully searchable records are transcribed from images of the tributes put up to honour the war dead from various conflicts including the Boer War, the First World War and World War II. This latest release from TheGenealogist covers war memorials from many parts of the UK, as well as some further afield monuments in Australia, Canada and New Zealand.

This new release covers memorials large and small. For example, there are over 3,100 names from the First World War commemorated in Middlesbrough, Teesside; while 527 names can be searched from Durham (covering both world wars); and another 1,655 individuals for Market Harborough in Leicestershire. You can discover that the roll of honour for the 59 men who were members of the congregation of St Nicholas church, in Durham, also records stars against the names of those who had been members of the 1st Durham Boy’s Brigade.

 

A number of school memorials, as well as those for places of work, are released including: The Haberdashers School – now in Hertfordshire; St Benedicts School, Glastonbury, Somerset; Takapuna School – in Auckland, New Zealand and Kohukohu school, also in New Zealand; King’s School in Bruton, Somerset; Monmouth Grammar School; Ightham School (Kent) WW1; Oving (West Sussex) school; London (Kensington) Lycee Francais WW2 – includes resistance fighters and some killed in concentration camps.

 

There are various business organisations who have honoured their dead employees with memorials. Some of those in this release include: Symingtons (corset makers) in Market Harborough, Leicestershire; Sevenoaks Postal District in Kent for their WW1 and WW2 deaths; the main colliery in Edlington, South Yorkshire; the London & Lancashire Insurance Company; the Phoenix Insurance Company; the Auckland (NZ) Harbour Board Staff; the Southern Co-operative WW1 and WW2 deaths from Portsmouth; Southdown Motor Services (Brighton Bus depot) WW2 deaths; Cox’s & Kings Bank (Army agents) from WW1 and WW2 and the London Stock Exchange – members and clerks for Boer War, WW1 and WW2.

 

In the Antipodes – the War Memorial in Auckland names all the men of New Zealand who were lost in the Boer War. While in Australia there are over 1,000 memorial plaques from tree-lined avenues in the park in Perth, Western Australia. Each memorial plaque in this park is dedicated to a particular man lost in WW1 or WW2 – some at Gallipoli, some on the Western Front, some fighting the Japanese as well as those who died when a POW in the Far East in WW2.

While from England, an unusual War Memorial is the WW1 roll of Honour for Leicestershire – the book is in a glass case in Leicester Cathedral and so is inaccessible. The names, however, are included in this release.

 

 

These records are available to Diamond subscribers of TheGenealogist as part of their large Military Records collection.

New Criminal Records online: Ancestors Imprisoned for Debt

Disclosure: Please note this post contains affiliate links.*

 

 

Latest News –

 

Press Release: New Records Reveal Those Imprisoned for Debt

The Genealogist is expanding its Criminal Records collection with the release of over 146,000 individuals who were listed in prison records. Sourced from the PRIS 10 & PRIS 11 collections held at The National Archives, these documents contain records from 1697 to 1862 and reveal those jailed for debt or bankruptcy. 

These records will give family historians details of those imprisoned in debtors prisons including the King’s Bench Prison, Queen’s Prison, Fleet Prison and Marshalsea Prison. They contain commitment and discharge records, giving details of names of the debtor, creditor and attorney, along with the amount of debt.

 

Use these records to:

  • Find ancestors who were imprisoned for debts and bankruptcy
  • Discover to who debts were owed
  • See when individuals were discharged

 

Within these records, we find John Dickens, father of the famous author Charles Dickens, who was in debt to baker James Karr by the sum of 40 pounds. John was brought in to custody on 20th February 1824 and was later discharged on 26th May 1824 when his mother died leaving him enough money to pay off his debts.

Marshalsea Prison as featured in new record at TheGenealogist

 

Charles Dickens had to earn a wage from a young age and his childhood experiences affected him greatly. He used his experiences as background for the story of Little Dorrit.

TheGenealogist Enhances the Map Explorer

Powerful new map tool helps trace ancestors’ Headstones and War Memorials 

PRESS RELEASE FROM THEGENEALOGIST

(Disclosure: Please note this blog post contains affiliate links that help me pay for this website.*)

TheGenealogist’s latest innovation, launched at the end of last month to help you find an ancestor’s property and watch the landscape change over time, has now had its first powerful new features added. This is only the beginning, with several other enhancements coming soon.

 

Joining the georeferenced Lloyd George Data Layer are Headstones and War Memorials.

Map Explorer locates various War Memorials in an area

 

  • TheGenealogist’s Map Explorer displays maps for historical periods up to the modern day.
  • Cemeteries have now been added to the maps – enabling researchers to locate burial grounds and view Headstone images, transcripts and cemetery views.
  • War Memorial site locations are shown, with links to see photographs, transcripts and setting.

 

Once you have found an ancestor’s grave or memorial, you will now not only be able to see an image of it and read a transcript, but also understand exactly where it is in relation to towns, villages or cities on the historic or modern maps. This should make it easier for family historians to plan a visit to see where an ancestor is buried or commemorated.

 

TheGenealogist’s powerful Map Explorer has been developed to view these georeferenced historic maps overlaid on top of modern background maps including those from Ordnance Survey and Bing Street maps, as well as a satellite view. With the Map Explorer you can search for an ancestor’s property, discovering its site, even if the road has changed or is no longer there.

 

Alternatively, using the Master Search on TheGenealogist, having found your forebear listed on a War Memorial or graveyard, clicking through to the Map Explorer will show the War Memorial’s or the cemetery’s whereabouts on the various maps.

 

See our article Using the latest features of the Map Explorer, where we find T.E. Lawrence’s headstone and the whereabouts of the Graveyard in which he is buried, plus Wilfred Owen’s War Memorial in his local church.

Announcing Map Explorer a powerful new map tool to trace ancestors’ properties

TheGenealogist announces its Map Explorer a powerful new map tool designed to help trace ancestors’ properties through time.

(Disclosure: Please note this blog post contains affiliate links that help me pay for this website.*)

 

TheGenealogist’s latest innovation helps you find an ancestor’s property and watch the landscape change over time. The team have georeferenced their Lloyd George Maps for Greater London which are available at launch, with further exciting developments planned for the coming months.

 

  • TheGenealogist’s Map Explorer displays maps for different historical periods up to the modern day
  • Maps are fully searchable by county, parish, street and even postcode
  • Zoom down to show the individual properties as they were at the time
  • Use the transparency slider to reveal a modern street map underneath
  • Change the modern base map displayed to more clearly understand what the area looks like today
  • Georeferenced pins link to the records for each property
  • Display county or parish boundaries
  • Find out more and watch the video at TheGenealogist.co.uk/maps/

 

The powerful Map Explorer has been developed to view these georeferenced historic maps overlaid on top of modern background maps including those from Ordnance Survey and Bing Street maps, as well as a satellite view, letting you see where your ancestor’s house is today.

 

To complement the launch of the new Map Explorer, TheGenealogist has also released historic Ordnance Survey maps covering England, Scotland and Wales between the 1890’s and 1960’s. These have also been georeferenced, allowing you to see how the landscape changed over time.

 

These maps have been divided up into 3 types of layer that can be viewed on top of each other like sheets of paper –  you can then change the transparency of a layer to view the layers below.

 

The Base Layer

This is the modern layer, which can be used to select a modern OS Map, Open Street Map or a Bing Satellite Image.

 

The Historic Layer

The historic layer can be used to select a range of OS maps from the 1890’s to the 1960’s

 

Record Set Layer

This layer provides access to map record sets such as the Lloyd George Domesday, or the soon to be launched Georeferenced Tithe Maps. Keep an eye out as further record sets are added to this layer in the future. This layer also has the ability to show “Pins”, these are map markers that link directly to the records so you can see who was living in a particular property.

[The new Map Explorer from TheGenealogist, going from a historic map to satellite view]

 

 

The new Map Explorer has several tools to aid researchers, such as the “Place Search”.  This allows you to enter a postcode or address (either Modern or Historic) and jump to that location on the maps.

 

Further tools let you see county and parish boundaries and even historic “Wards”, which were the areas that the Lloyd George Domesday Survey were divided into.

[Map showing coverage now available for Lloyd George Domesday Maps]

 

Researchers are now able to view Lloyd George Domesday Maps for the Greater London Area (Survey books for this area are being released ward by ward over the coming months).

 

Now you can pinpoint properties old and new with TheGenealogist’s Map Explorer.

Westminster joins the 1910 Lloyd George Domesday Records with annotated maps online

Disclosure: Please note this post contains affiliate links.*

Latest News

TheGenealogist has just released the maps and field books for the Westminster area into its exciting record set, The Lloyd George Domesday Survey. This new release can be used to find where an ancestor lived in 1910 to 1915 in the area around Westminster. This unique combination of maps and residential data held by The National Archives has been digitised by TheGenealogist so that researchers can locate where an ancestor lived. The maps are large scale and exceptionally detailed with hand annotations that, in the majority of cases, allow family historians to find the exact property in the street.

This release of Lloyd George Domesday Survey records covers Westminster and the area shown above

Researchers often have difficulty using modern maps to find where ancestors lived as road names changed over time, the Blitz saw areas bombed to destruction, developers changed sites out of all resemblance from what had stood there before and lanes and roads were extinguished to build housing estates and office blocks. As these records are linked to the maps from the period this means that you have the ability to find the streets as they existed when the survey was carried out and often pinpoint where the old properties had once been.

– Links properties to extremely detailed ordnance survey maps used in 1910

– Shows the original Field book giving a detailed description of the property

– Fully searchable by name, parish and street

 

Complementing the maps on TheGenealogist are the accompanying Field Books that will provide researchers with detailed information relative to the valuation of each property, including the valuation assessment number, map reference, owner, occupier, situation, description and extent.

This mammoth project is ongoing with over 94,500 Field Books, each having hundreds of pages of information on properties to digitise with associated large scale IR121 annotated OS maps.

The release this month covers the civil parishes of Brook, Bryanston Square, Cavendish Square, Church,  Conduit, Curzon, Dorset Square, Dover, Great Marlborough, Grosvenor, Hamilton Terrace, Hamlet of Knightsbridge, Hyde Park, Knightsbridge, Lancaster Gate, Liberty Of The Rolls, Maida Vale, Pall Mall, Petty France, Pimlico North, Pimlico South, Portland Place, Portman Square, Queens Park, Regent 1, Regent 2, St Anne Soho, St Clement Danes, St John Westminster, St Martin in the Fields, St Mary Le Strand, St Paul Covent Garden, Westbourne and Westminster. More areas will be released soon for other London Boroughs and the county of Buckinghamshire.
