Welcome to the parishregister May newsletter. This month we've uploaded another in the St Dunstan's series, 1608-1628, so we're (or I should say Jim is) gradually closing the gap up to 1730. Once that's been achieved then we'll have all the records from 1568 all the way up to 1848! We've also got the first of our Catholic Register CDs back in stock (SS Mary and Joseph), two new CDs from the East of London Family History Society, three offers on East of London Family History CDs, a new special offer on our compendiums 1-5, and a new book in stock.
St Dunstan Stepney 1568-1608 8104 entries
St Dunstan Stepney 1608-1628 10040 entries
I must say it was really interesting looking through both of these masterpieces of social history expertly transcribed by Jim (they weren't in the best condition as you can imagine). Early on in both I started noticing a number of 'Sirs' appearing with the occupation given as 'knight', like Sir Roger Workinton and there was also a Right Honourable Lord Herbert in one. Also it's interesting to see how they spelt place names 400 hundred years ago e.g Bednal Green, Lymehouse, Radclife and Myle End. A few interesting occupations were also thrown up; bodymaker, Bazill man, coluper, house smith and beggar (would you admit to this?) to name but a few.

This CD is the starting point for those with waterage ancestry. Once you have established the Binding date of your ancestor, the next step is to apply for his Apprenticeship Affidavit. This will show you his dates of birth and baptism and most importantly, the parish he was born in. This then enables further research.

Map of Middlesex 1611 by by John Norden and John Speed
This beautiful and highly illustrated map of Middlesex has 2 town plans. One of Westminster and the other of London being separate towns at that time. In the lower 2 corners of this map are drawings of Saint Peters or Westminster Abbey and St Paul's Cathedral with a set of notes on each. St Paul's is shown with the loss of its spire in 1561 before it was restored in the 1630s by Inigo Jones. The print shown is a copy of the original and so is in colour, the print we offer you is in black and white. The print measures 46cms x 58cms.

A Balloon View of London 1851
One of several maps and panoramas of London to come out in 1851, the year of the Great Exhibition. This is an aerial panorama, naming streets and showing many individual buildings. The view is looking southwards and therefore appears "upside-down" compared to most maps. The enormous glass building built in Hyde Park for the Great Exhibition is shown - Cockneys dubbed it the "Crystal Palace" and it's even named as such on the panorama.
The black and white map is an exhilarating view of London looking south over the River Thames, as if taken from a balloon over Hampstead. This plan/view's extent (St John's Wood - Battersea Park - De Beauvoir Town - Greenwich) and large size makes for a superbly detailed image with innumerable streets, buildings and landmarks identifiable. First published on the opening day of the Great Exhibition, the plan proved immensely popular with re-issues appearing into the late 1870s.
