Publications / Kent Settlement (Poor Law) Records - A Guide and Catalogue

Settlement records are an indispensable source, particularly for family history research in the late 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, enabling one to trace the movements of ancestors into and out of the parishes where they lived. All types of people feature, not just paupers, but also labourers, tradesmen, craftsmen, unaccompanied children, widows etc. The two volumes and Supplement to Part 1 include a parish by parish catalogue of all known surviving Kent settlement records, covering all the different types. Each volume has a useful introduction to the surviving documentation for that part of Kent, together with information about the different types of settlement documents and what information can be gained from each. Each volume also includes a Select Bibliography.
