Westminster added to TheGenealogist's Lloyd George Domesday Survey records

393b5aea-78b4-4a55-908f-0f36346e63c1

TheGenealogist has announced the addition of Westminster to its 1910 Lloyd George Domesday Survey records.

This new release can be used to find where an ancestor lived in 1910 to 1915 in the area around Westminster. 

What is the Lloyd George Domesday Survey?

The 1910 Lloyd George Domesday Survey combines a unique combination of maps and residential data, held by The National Archives, so that researchers can precisely locate their ancestor’s house on large scale (5 feet to the mile) hand annotated maps of London. 

The release links individual properties to extremely detailed ordnance survey maps used in 1910 which are coupled with the accompanying books that will also provide researchers with basic information relative to the valuation of each property, including the valuation assessment number, map reference, owner, occupier, situation, description and extent.

People doing house histories can locate a specific house using an address that has previously been found in a census, or in a street directory. 

Using the Lloyd George Domesday Survey

Complementing the maps on TheGenealogist are the accompanying Field Books that will provide researchers with detailed information relative to the valuation of each property, including the valuation assessment number, map reference, owner, occupier, situation, description and extent.

The project is ongoing, with over 94,500 Field Books, each having hundreds of pages of information on properties to digitise with associated large scale IR121 annotated OS maps. 

The release this month covers the civil parishes of Brook, Bryanston Square, Cavendish Square, Church, Conduit, Curzon, Dorset Square, Dover, Great Marlborough, Grosvenor, Hamilton Terrace, Hamlet of Knightsbridge, Hyde Park, Knightsbridge, Lancaster Gate, Liberty Of The Rolls, Maida Vale, Pall Mall, Petty France, Pimlico North, Pimlico South, Portland Place, Portman Square, Queens Park, Regent 1, Regent 2, St Anne Soho, St Clement Danes, St John Westminster, St Martin in the Fields, St Mary Le Strand, St Paul Covent Garden, Westbourne and Westminster. More areas will be released soon for other London Boroughs and the county of Buckinghamshire.

The Lloyd George Domesday Survey records are available to diamond subscribers on TheGenealogist.
