Farnham Papers

Farnham Papers (3)

Created by Julie Goucher using Wordclouds.com May 2020

Back in 1988, I visited Farnham library. The attraction was not the rows and rows of books, but the collection of locally held material for Removal & Settlement documents. This material was of course copies, with the originals located at the Records Office.

At that time, Surrey material was held across several locations, Surrey Records Office at Kingston upon Thames, The Muniment Room at Guildford, which was located as part of the Museum and the local studies facility located at Guildford Library.

Farnham Papers 1988

Original notes taken 4 October 1988 – Julie Goucher

So, there I sat with the copies of the originals searching for a particular family. A particular family that was not easily spotted. It was not a wasted journey, because I extracted a number of other entries.

It is those entries that I am going to share, under the subject of Farnham Papers which you can access HERE. The movement of people who needed the support of their respective parish. I have glanced through the extracted entries and find that most of these entries are between towns in Surrey and Hampshire, although there are examples from parishes across London, Buckinghamshire, Sussex, Berkshire, and Essex.

These are just examples from the extractions I took and are not exhaustive. Surrey History Centre Catalogue is available HERE.
