New Database on London Social History

"London Lives 1690 to 1800" presents sources on "Crime, Poverty and Social Policy in the Metropolis," in a searchable database of some 240,000 manuscripts drawn from 8 archives and containing some 3.35 million names.

Funded by the Economic and Social Research Counci, it is the joint initiative of the Humanities Research Institute at the University of Sheffield and the Higher Education Digitisation Service at the University of Hertfordshire.
