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.

East Stonehouse from Mount Edgcumbe Folly

27th November 2018

East Stonehouse from the Mount Edgcumbe Folly, built in 1747. East Stonehouse was one of three towns that were amalgamated into modern-day Plymouth. It was situated across the Tamar estuary from Mount Edgcumbe. The parish church of St.George, dating from 1789 and closed in 1957 following damage in WW2, was where Charles KESTELL and Grace WHENMOUTH were married and also where Sarah, daughter of Thomas and Grace BRENT, was baptised.
