Immigrants

Names and information about foreigners coming during the past six hundred years to live in Britain can be obtained from various series records in The National Archives, but there is no composite index of names. Valuable assistance in tracing references to individual immigrants in the period down to c. 1800 can be obtained from several publications of the Huguenot Society of London, which include transcripts of lists and entries from many records, and are indexed; and from 1800 there are useful printed Indexes of Names which greatly assist discovery of information available from records of the Home Office. More precise mention of these and other publications is made at suitable points in this research guide; most are available in the Reader Information Services Department at The National Archives, where several series of printed Calendars of records, as well as the copies of individual series lists, may also be consulted. for more click here
