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.

Reading, St.Laurence Church and Market Place

10th June 2019

Reading, St.Laurence Church and Market Place. St Laurence's was one of the three original parish churches, along with St Mary's and St Giles', serving the medieval borough of Reading. It was built to serve the people of the eastern part of the town. Its location next to the Abbey stimulated trade in that part of the town and St Laurence's soon became surrounded by a large market place which included a pillory and stocks. John EDKINS married Ann BINFIELD in St.Laurence's, and Ann was baptised in the same church, where her parents also married.
