Glouces­ter­shire Poor Law in­dex

Glouces­ter­shire Fam­ily His­tory So­ci­ety (GFHS) has kindly sup­plied four prod­ucts for Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine read­ers to down­load this month.

The first is a county-wide PDF in­dex of peo­ple men­tioned in Poor Law records held at Glouces­ter­shire Archives. As well as names and dates, it lists ages, oc­cu­pa­tions, places of res­i­dence and the ref­er­ence num­bers of each source doc­u­ment.

The in­dex is nor­mally only avail­able to ac­cess as part of the so­ci­ety’s Glouces­ter­shire Mis­cel­la­neous Col­lec­tion, priced £10 on CD or £8 as a down­load from gfhs.org.uk.

Memo­ri­als and Cit­i­zens of Glouces­ter

The sec­ond GFHS prod­uct, priced £5 on CD and down­load, brings to­gether as­sorted works by Henry Yates Jones Tay­lor (1826– 1906), an “his­to­rian, an­ti­quary, scholar and poet” who spent much of his life writ­ing about Glouces­ter and its cit­i­zens.

Tran­scribed from scrap­books now held at Glouces­ter­shire Archives, the 426-page PDF con­tains me­mo­rial in­scrip­tions, wills, news­pa­per cut­tings and other notes com­piled through­out Tay­lor’s long ca­reer.

Freemen of the City of Glouces­ter, 1838–2013 (ex­tract)

The third GFHS re­source is an XLS (spread­sheet) file con­tain­ing names ex­tracted from the so­ci­ety’s CD Freemen of the City of Glouces­ter, 1838–2013, priced £10.

Fea­tur­ing nearly 200 en­tries, the spread­sheet lists all men granted the free­dom of the City of Glouces­ter be­tween 1838 and 1846, as well as the name of the mayor at the time. The full CD ver­sion of the prod­uct also con­tains scans of the freemen reg­is­ter pages.

Port of Glouces­ter Pilotage In­wards, 1874– 1886 (ex­tract)

The fi­nal GFHS prod­uct is an ex­tract from the so­ci­ety’s CD Port of Glouces­ter Pilotage In­wards, 1874–1886, priced £10.

Sup­plied in XLS for­mat, the spread­sheet con­tains more than 11,000 en­tries tran­scribed from a reg­is­ter of cargo ships that en­tered the Sev­ern Es­tu­ary dur­ing the late 19th cen­tury. As with the pre­vi­ous prod­uct, the full CD also con­tains scans of the original reg­is­ter pages.

Glouces­ter­shire Archives im­age set

Fi­nally we have a gallery con­tain­ing 15 in­ter­est­ing doc­u­ments and pho­to­graphs from Glouces­ter­shire Archives. High­lights in­clude an en­grav­ing of Brim­scombe Port (1826) and a map of wartime bomb dam­age in Chel­tenham (1942).
