BOOK - A Genealogical Gazetteer of England (pre 1831)
By Frank Smith
Published by Genealogical Publishing Company, Baltimore, 2002 (edition)

Hardcover... 57.95 (C$)
Book The only book of its kind, this indispensable reference tool with its 17,000 entries is designed to facilitate research by giving the names and descriptions of places in England as they existed prior to 1831, giving location, ecclesiastical jurisdiction, population, and the date of the earliest entry in the registers of every ancient parish, thus combining genealogical information hitherto impossible to find in any but the rarest sources.

The information supplied is as follows:
  1. a description of each parish, chapelry, hamlet, town, etc., as it was in 1831
  2. the date of commencement of all Church of England parish registers
  3. the name of the county or shire in which the place was situated in 1831
  4. the distance in miles from the next largest place
  5. the population of each place as of 1831
  6. the ecclesiastical jurisdiction of each parish in 1831
  7. the existence of nonconformist churches or meeting places for Quakers, Baptists, Methodists, etc.
Review:
"The information is based on the 1831 edition of Lewis' Topographical Dictionary but has been corrected as a result of the compiler's many years of experience in English genealogical research. Since civil registration of vital statistics began in 1837 and the censuses of 1841 and 1851 were arranged by parishes and their sub-districts, the 1831 descriptions of location are especially helpful--much more so than modern location information would be. This is an important guide...and will help all who are seeking English ancestors." --The Virginia Genealogist

BOOK - Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, Father of the Canadian Crown
By Nathan Tidridge; J.J. Grant
Published by Dundurn, Toronto, 2013
The story of Prince Edward Augustus, Duke of Kent (1767-1820) is also a story of early Canada. An active participant in the very genesis of the country, including discussions that would eventually lead to Confederation, the Prince lived in Quebec City, undertook historic tours of Upper Canada and the United States (both firsts for a member of the Royal Family) before he was stationed in Halifax, Nova Scotia, as commander-in-chief of British North America. Canada's maps are dotted with his name (Prince Edward Island the most obvious example), making him one of the most honoured among our forgotten historical figures. Exiled from the court of his father, and accompanied by his long-time mistress Julie de St. Laurent, the 24-year-old Prince Edward Augustus arrived in Quebec City in 1791. His life became woven into the fabric of a highly-charged society and left an indelible mark on the role of the monarchy in Canada. Seventy years later the country would be united under the crown of his daughter, Victoria, Sir John A. Macdonald’s "Queen of Canada."

BOOK - Tracing Your Ancestors through Death Records (UK), A Guide For Family Historians
By Celia Heritage
Published by Pen and Sword Books, S. Yorkshire, UK, 2013
Of all family history sources, death records are probably the least used by researchers. They are, however, frequently the most revealing of records, giving a far greater insight into our ancestors' lives and personalities than those records created during their lifetime. Celia Heritage leads readers through the various types of death records, showing how they can be found, read and interpreted – and how to glean as much information as possible from them. In many cases they can be used as a starting point for developing your family history research into other equally rewarding areas. This highly readable handbook is packed with useful information and helpful research advice. In addition, a thought-provoking final chapter looks into the repercussions of death – its effects on the surviving members of the family and the fact that a premature death could sometimes affect the family for generations to come.

The trail that an ancestor leaves through the Victorian period and the twentieth century is relatively easy to follow – the records are plentiful, accessible and commonly used.

Jonathan Oates’s clearly written new handbook gives you all the background knowledge you need in order to go into this engrossing area of family history research.

BOOK - Early Yorkshire Families
Editors: Charles Clay, Diana E. Greenway
Published by Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1973 (2013)
First published in 1973, this collection of notes and documents relating to approximately 100 Yorkshire families who held land of the Crown in Yorkshire in the middle ages was compiled by the antiquary Sir Charles Travis Clay (1885–1978). Deeply interested in the history of his home county, he was held in high esteem for his editing of medieval charters, and the ten volumes of Early Yorkshire Charters that he edited between 1935 and 1965 (also reissued in this series as part of the complete thirteen-volume set) were regarded as a masterpiece. In Early Yorkshire Families, Clay's notes on each lineage establish its provenance, its genealogy, the origin of its land tenure (with further illustrative documents contained in the latter part of the work), and how land was held and transmitted. This work is an invaluable source of information for researchers interested in medieval Yorkshire or the feudal system generally.

BOOK - Voices from the Workhouse    [United Kingdom]
By Peter Higginbotham
Published by The History Press Ltd, Stroud, Gloucestershire, 2012
Voices from the Workhouse tells the real inside story of the workhouse - in the words of those who experienced the institution at first hand, either as inmates or through some other connection with the institution. Using a wide variety of sources - letters, poems, graffiti, autobiography, official reports, testimony at official inquiries, and oral history. Peter Higginbotham creates a vivid portrait of what really went on behind the doors of the workhouse - all the sights, sounds and smells of the place, and the effect it had on those whose lives it touched. Was the workhouse the cruel and inhospitable place as which it's often presented, or was there more to it than that? This book lets those who knew the place provide the answer.

By Peter Higginbotham
Published by The History Press Ltd, Stroud, Gloucestershire, 2013
For two centuries, the shadow of the workhouse hung over Britain.

This book contains 365 incredible tales of fires, drownings, explosions and disasters, infamous scandals such as the Andover affair - where inmates were forced to eat the bones they were supposed to be crushing to ward off starvation - and sickening tales of abuse, assault, bodysnatching, poisonings, post mortems and murder. Accompanied by 70 rare and wonderful illustrations, this book will thrill, fascinate, sadden and unnerve in equal measure.

BOOK - Life in the Victorian & Edwardian Workhouse [United Kingdom]
By Michelle Higgs
Published by The History Press, Gloucestershire, UK (2007)
This book establishes a true picture of what life was like in a workhouse, of why inmates entered them and of what they had to endure in their day-to-day routine. A comprehensive overview of the workshouse system gives a real and compelling insight into social and moral reasons behind their growth in the Victorian era, while the kind of distinctions that were drawn between inmates are looked into, which, along with the social stigma of having been a workhouse inmate, tell us much about class attitudes of the time. The book also looks at living conditions and duties of the staff who, in many ways, were prisoners of the workhouse. Michelle Higgs combines thorough research with a fresh outlook on a crucial period in British history, and in doing so paints a vivid portrait of an era and its social standards that continues to fascinate, and tells us much about the society we live in today. .

BOOK - The Fleet Registers
By John Southerden 1798-1870
Originally published by Rivington's, London, 1833
This reprint by University of California Libraries, 2011

An British irregular or clandestine marriage was a marriage conducted by an ordained clergyman, but without banns or licence. The marriages were normally performed outside the home parishes of the bride and groom, and originally took place in prison chapels, though they were not necessarily disreputable in any way. Insofar as it is estimated that nearly 15% of all marriages in England were celebrated "in the Fleet", many of those who are researching their English roots, and have been unable to locate a marriage record in a Parish Register, may benefit from knowing more about the Fleet Registers.

By Jonathan Brown
Published by Pen and Sword Books, S. Yorkshire, UK, 2011
Many family historians will come across direct links to ancestors who lived and worked in the countryside as farmers, labourers, landowners, village tradesmen and professionals.

At the same time he identifies and discusses the relevant national and local records, indicates where they can be found, and offers essential advice on how this information can be used to piece together the lives of distant and not so distant relatives. Tracing Your Rural Ancestors is essential reading for anyone who is looking for an insight into the history of rural life, work and society.

BOOK - Welsh Family History, A Guide to Research

This book is not a step by step guide for complete beginners. Instead it is aimed at those with some knowledge of research generally who are either experienceing difficulties with their Welsh lines or who are, perhaps, coming to Welsh research for the first time. The editorial group had two main aims in mind when steering this book to publication. First, to give readers an insight into the social, cultural, religious and linguistic background of Wales and the ways in which this can effect hamily history research. Secondly, it wanted to dispel the widely held belief that these aspects pose insurmountable barriers to researching Welsh ancestors. 316 pgs/pub1994/softcover. More information

BOOK - British Army Pensioners Abroad, 1772-1899
By Norman K. Crowder
Published by Genealogical Publishing, Baltimore, 1995, reprinted in paperback 2012
The book includes all British Army pensioners who retired to any place outside of Great Britain including Canada, Australia, Caribbean, Ceylon etc, for which records are available (1772-1899). The largest portion chose to settle in Canada. British Army pensioners lived in the vicinity of every major center in the Canadian Atlantic Provinces, Quebec, and Ontario. In many cases their children and grandchildren emigrated to New England, New York, Michigan, and the American West. It is likely there are several million North Americans descended from these so-called "Chelsea pensioners." This book, which lists veterans who were discharged primarily during the period from 1800 to 1857, will help their descendants to trace their British origins.

Edited by Ian M. McCulloch & Timothy J. Todish
Introduction: Stephen Brumwell; Artwork: Robert Griffing
Published by Robins Brass Studio, Montreal, 2004

He became an accomplished marksman, hunter and tracker, proficient in the use of canoes, snowshoes and tumplines. Robert Kirk's memoirs, reprinted here for the first time since 1775, bring his exciting story to life. A riveting read for those who are interested in the period.

BOOK - A Matter of Honour: The Life, Campaigns and Generalship of Isaac Brock
By Jonathon Riley. Foreword by Donald E. Graves
Published by Robin Brass Studio. Montreal, 2011
Isaac Brock was the British general responsible for defending the long frontier of Upper Canada with meagre forces in the opening days of the War of 1812. Revered by generations of schoolchildren as the "Saviour of Upper Canada" and commemorated by a towering monument on Queenston Heights, Brock is best known in Canada for his vigorous measures to defend against the invading American forces and for the daring exploit at Queenston Heights in which he died. Brock was a resourceful field commander who believed in offensive measures to keep his opponent off-balance and he is probably best known in the United States for managing to cow U.S. General William Hull into surrendering Detroit, to that general’s eternal shame.

BOOK - Strange Fatality, The Battle of Stoney Creek, 1813
By James E. Elliott .
The first detailed account of the little-known battle that changed the course of the War of 1812. Journalist and author James Elliott has compellingly reconstructed one of the least understood actions of the War of 1812. From the rise to brigadier of blacksmith John Chandler, to the Highland heroics of Alexander Fraser, Strange Fatality explores the dynamics of a night battle that stemmed the tide of invasion, cost two generals their freedom and unseated the highest-ranking soldier in the American army. In this ground-breaking study of a battle in which both sides were essentially blind, James Elliott sheds light, not only on a violent donnybrook in the dark, but also on the bizarre train of events that occasioned it. With 10 original maps, over 100 illustrations, portraits and photographs, many never seen before, as well as appendices on battlefield archaeology and the little-known “monument war.”

BOOK - A Very Brilliant Affair, The Battle of Queenston Heights, 1812. This new look at the battle tackles many of the myths that have grown over the years. Was Brock the hero of the day?

Could the American invading force have won? Robert Malcomson's exciting and readable account will add a new level of appreciation for the drama and significance of the War of 1812.

BOOK - Tecumseh's Bones, A historical mystery about the deception behind the death, burial, and legacy of the great Shawnee chief, Tecumseh.
By Guy St-Denis
Chief Tecumseh's death at the Battle of the Thames marked a turning point in the Anglo-American War of 1812. It was also the beginning of a mystery: the mutilation of Native corpses thwarted American attempts to identify Tecumseh's remains, giving rise to the belief that his body had been secretly recovered by his warriors. Tecumseh's Bones teases fact from fiction in the myths and legends surrounding the great chief's burial. Drawing on a wealth of archival material, most of which has never been published, Tecumseh's Bones will fascinate history buffs, historians, and mystery lovers. More information

American Revolution / United Empire Loyalists:
    In response to protests in Boston over the British Parliament's attempts to maintain authority over its North American colonies, the British mobilized its army to put down the rebellion. Consequently the rebels formed militias of like-minded individuals to face the British military and to 'discourage' those colonial citizens who wished to remain loyal to the crown. Fighting broke out in 1775, offically ending in 1783 with the signing of the Treaty of Paris. Surviving Loyalists needed to find refuge outside of the United States. The movement of United Empire Loyalists to Canada was a critical event in the settlement of what later became Canada. Loyalists settled throughout the present-day Atlantic provinces, Quebec and Ontario. Their descendants migrated throughout Canada and beyond.

BOOK - Loyalist Refugees, Non-Military Refugees in Quebec 1776-1784
By Gavin K. Watt
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2014
Soldiers did not come alone. In the past, wives, mothers, fathers, grandparents, sisters, brothers and children of the fighting men have been given secondary treatment. In Loyalist Refugees, they are the subjects of a study describing the systematic persecution that forced so many to seek refuge in Quebec. How these unfortunate people were housed, fed, clothed and employed is examined, as is their desperate unhappiness and discontent. This book identifies and lists details for more than 2,000 non-military loyalist refugees who sheltered in lower Quebec during the American Revolution—pointing researchers to crucial primary and secondary sources in Canada, the USA, and the UK. Many if not most of these refugees migrated to places across British North America and beyond, after their period of sanctuary in Quebec. ISBN 978-1-926797-96-0 (Coil bound)    More information

BOOK - Sketches Illustrating The Early Settlement and History of Glengarry in Canada
By J. A. MacDonell.
J. A. MacDonell recognized that much had been written on the subject of United Empire Loyalist settlement in Ontario, the War of 1812-14, and the Rebellion of 1837-8, but expressed concern that there was little mention made of the part that the Highlanders of Glengarry played in those conflicts. He corrects that oversight within the 29 chapters that comprise this formitable text. This book is an fine source of information for those interested in early settlement of the Highlanders in Glengarry and surrounding counties, and the role that they played in the American Revolution, United Empire Loyalist migration and settlement, War of 1812, and the Rebellion of 1837-38.
