MEETING OF UXBRIDGE GENEALOGY GROUP

This presentation demonstrates the use of many English record types—in a period well before census and civil registration. The search for the subject of this case history, Londoner Alban Leaf (1681-1756), takes us from manorial records and parish registers in Yorkshire, to Faculty Office marriage license allegations at Lambeth Palace and an ancient church in Smithfield, to manors in rural Essex, and to intriguing records of inheritance in all locations. Special attention is paid to search techniques—understanding what records might exist, how their location may be influenced by geography and changes in custody, and casting a wider net to compensate for missing records. The presentation features several of the wonderful online finding aids and digitizing projects available to UK searchers, as well as on-the-cobbles research.
