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.

Lincoln, St.Martin's (1784)

7th February 2020
Sue Mackay
St.Martin's Church, Lincoln, was one of the oldest churches in the city of Lincoln. It was almost totally destroyed in the Civil War but was restored in 1740 and rebuilt in the Georgian style. This church was demolished in 1873. William SOUTH married the widow Lydia SIMPSON here in 1814. It was a third marriage for Lydia, who was the mother of the settler Joseph HEWSON.
