TheGenealogist has released more than 72,000 land owner and occupier records for Camden and the surrounding areas of London.
TheGenealogist has released records of 72,663 individuals so that researchers will be able to discover useful details about ancestors’ homes from the following London areas in 1910: Albany, Belsize, Camden Town, Chalk Farm, Euston, Grays Inn Road, Highgate East, Highgate West, Kilburn, Priory and Adelaide Parish (Hampstead), St Andrew East, St Andrew West, St Giles East, St Giles North, St Giles South, Saffron Hill, Somers Town and Tottenham Court Road.
What can I find in the records?
These property tax records, collected by the Inland Revenue’s Valuation offices, are linked to detailed OS maps that will pinpoint down to plot level and can be searched by name or keywords using the Master Search, or by selecting a pin from the map displayed inside TheGenealogist’s Map Explorer™.
The ability to switch between georeferenced modern and historic maps allows you to see how the neighbourhood in which their ancestors had lived or worked may have altered with the passing of time.
The value of these IR58 records, digitised by TheGenealogist from the originals at The National Archives, is that researchers can discover all sorts of information about the past owners and occupiers of the homes, land, outbuildings and property recorded in these areas at the time before Britain was plunged into the First World War.
