Advanced searching of the families and estates index
The advanced search of the Family and Estates Index offers a more focused search of this index. Searches can be conducted by name or peerage title and may be refined by seat, county and/or date.
To search for a family by name or title enter one or more elements in the Name field, such as 'Noel' or 'Gainsborough' for the Noel family, Earls of Gainsborough.
To refine search enter a seat name, such as 'Exton'.
Further topographical searches can be conducted by electing a county from the drop down list.
The search may be refined further by entering a date. NOTE: if 1790 is entered this will retrieve all entries which cover this year, for example 1650-1920.
NOTE: When making a search on the Families and estates Index, do not be tempted to fill in every data field on the search screen. Work from the general to the particular – not vice versa!
