1820 Settler Places in Britain and Éire

In many cases, particularly in cities like London and Bristol, many buildings with settler ties no longer exist. In such cases I have tried to include historical pictures where possible, and where I have not been able to take pictures myself I have added pictures from, which can be used under a Creative Commons Licence. Where the photographer’s name appears as a clickable link followed by a CC BY-SA 2.0 reference, the original photo can be viewed together with other photographs of the surrounding area.

The pictures are currently arranged by county for England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, with separate sections for the cities of Birmingham, Bristol, Dublin, Edinburgh, Liverpool, London, Manchester and Nottingham. London has been further sub-divided into Boroughs so as not to have too many pictures in one file. The pictures appear as small icons with a brief title. Clicking on them will reveal a larger picture with text explaining the link to one or more settlers and a credit to the photographer. Clicking on the + sign will further enlarge the picture to full screen (ESCape to exit full screen), and the photographs can all be downloaded from the site.

St.George in the East

3rd November 2018

St.George in the East, Cannon Street Road. The church was hit by a bomb during the WW2 Blitz on London's docklands in May 1941. The original interior was destroyed by the fire, but the walls and distinctive "pepper-pot" towers stayed up. In 1964 a modern church interior was constructed inside the existing walls. Matthew DOLD and Jane ARNOLD were married in this church, as were Thomas FODEN and Mary ESOM, George MARSDEN and Elizabeth GREEN, John ROWLES and Sarah WRIGHT and John YOUNGER and Ann BLATHERWICK. Jemima BACON (wife of James PAWLE) was baptised here, as were Francis and Robert (children of Francis BLACKBEARD), Sarah (daughter of George BRAY), Stephen DENHAM, the children of Joseph and Dorcas OLDHAM, three children of Enos SAUNDERS (aka Thomas Saunders BROWN) and John SAUNDERS (BAILIE's Party).
