The Search box is now at the top-right (or top-left) corner of all pages.

Use it to find topics of your choice, wherever they occur in the Virtual Museum. You may search for names, places, dates - anything!

Please note that many family names have a variety of spellings, such as Wodham and Woodham, Pearse and Pearce, Clisdel, Clisdale and Clidsdall.

Consider also alternative spellings for everything(!) - if you are looking for trades, note that you may find "plumber" often spelt "plummer", or "maltster" spelt "malster" in 18th century documents.
