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.

Cam, St.George's Church Interior

14th March 2018
Sue Mackay

Interior of St.George's, Upper Cam. Thomas BAKER married his first two wives in this church (both being buried here) and several of his children were baptised in St.George's. Thomas BRENT's youngest child was baptised here. Elisha KING was Thomas BRENT's uncle by marriage, and his three children, the settlers Joseph, Henry and Philip KING, were all baptised in St.George's, as were the eldest three children of Richard and Elizabeth BRADSHAW.
