Possible Pitfalls in Using the Census
Many people don't realise that the census page images we see are actually transcripts of the household census forms, the details were copied into the books by the enumerators.

 

Fleet Registers
Before 1754 many marriages were not performed in parish churces due to the need for people to get around the need for banns and other petty regulations. The favourite alternative venue was the Fleet Prison.

 

Naval Service
Navy Lists contains additional information beyond naval officers and the dates of their seniority, which takes the careers of some back into the late eighteenth century.

 

Military Head Dress
Headwear is one of the defining items of military clothing. The colour signifies which part of the army a soldier belongs to, and the headwear carries the Corps or Regimental badge.
