England Jurisdiction 1851 - Contiguous Parishes Online
Brilliant finding aid which not only allows you to view contiguous parishes it also shows county boundaries, civil reigstration districts, poor law union, hundreds, for any parish in England in 1851. Experience has taught me always look in surrounding parishes to where I believe my ancestors lived as they moved more than we give them credit for.

Was your ancestor a Publican?
This site is invaluable for finding out whether they ran a Pub.

Thanks Jenny, I am determined to win this.  It was such a shock to find out how bad things were after one gynaecologist missed it in February.  Luckily here in the Liverpool area we have a Women's hospital with fantastic team of doctors/onchologists and dedicated nursing staff who are second to none.


Thank you for your support. I put my postings on Face Book to all my friends who are all behind me and they are all cheering me on.

Best wishes

Took a while but it clicked : 


to search for the surname

Comment by John Pepperdine on August 10, 2011 at 1:58am

If my instructions are not clear I obviously need to amend them. When I follow my own instructions I get an indication that the surname Linstead is mentioned on three pages. Why does this not happen when you try? I have no idea unless you tell me which search engine you are using and what you are entering in the search box I cannot help. Perhaps not all search engines operate in the same way perhaps you have misunderstood my instruction in some way which I could not possibly have anticipated. I am afraid that Lesley's "ahhhh" does not move thing forward at all as far as I am concerned.

Looking forward to clearing up the confusion. Please excuse the delay I do not turn my computer on every day

To John Pepperdine


I am  a bit thick re computers but I tried your suggestion below with Linstead, one of my Norfolk surnames and the search engine could not find anything. Is this because there is nothing or did I misunderstand your instructions below? Sorry to be a pain!

If you are looking for a particular surname in Norfolk England you may like to know that I have now recorded the memorial inscriptions at over 60 Norfolk parishes and will continue to do so. To search for the surname Jones for example enter this in your search engine
