In order to make this blog easier to use for research, this page gives an alphabetical index to the biographical entries in the posts issued to date. It will be revised after each new posting. The number in brackets after each entry refers to the number assigned to the family and used in the title of each post. Where the account of a family is split over two or more posts, the reference appears in the form (306:3) – indicating the third part of post 306. People whose name changed - through marriage or by royal licence - during their life are indexed under the last name they used, with the earlier name or names indicated in brackets after the surname, e.g.:
Evans (née Allen, then Harrison-Allen), Auriol Joan Bartlett (1921-92) (102)
Beevor, Sir (Thomas) Hugh Cunliffe (b. 1962), 8th bt. (531).
As far as possible, dates given for individuals living before the calendar change in 1752 are here corrected to the modern style of dating for the sake of simplicity. Thus the covering dates for someone who was born on 7 January 1662/3 and died on 24 March 1751/2 will be shown here as (1663-1752).
