Using this site
Feel free to use the material on this site for your own research or non-commercial purposes - but please also acknowledge where it came from. Please do not re-use images which have been given to me by other people - I will probably be perfectly happy for you to use my own photographs, but do contact me first.
This website is only possible because of the generosity of others, and because I abide by the rules - both the written rules, and those of politeness. As the memorial in the old Congregational church says, 'Go ye and do likewise'.
Once you are on the page which has the word you are searching for, pressing 'Ctrl' and 'F' on your keyboard will bring up a box, in which you can write the word again. The word will then be highlighted on the page.
I usually use the spellings as written in the documents where I have found the information, so try different spellings.
Nothing on what you are searching for ? Email me at and I will see what I can find out.
NB I recently found that because I had put some
information in brackets it wasn't showing up in a search. I am trying to
amend the instances where I have done that. It might be worth searching
for surnames with an apostrophe 's' at the end: for instance I am not
sure whether putting in the search Husson would bring up Husson's Inn.
