Index to property- and archive-holders

Pages 239-246

A Survey of Documentary Sources for Property Holding in London before the Great Fire. Originally published by London Record Society, London, 1985.

This free content was digitised by double rekeying and sponsored by London Record Society. All rights reserved.



This index provides a guide to the main headings of the survey (holders of property, and libraries and record offices with collections relating to London), arranged alphabetically by name or place. Several group- and subject-headings are also included. The index does not cover subheadings within entries, except for 265, 3834, 416, where the subheadings relate to different entities. It therefore does not include those private property holders whose present or former records are described in entries for libraries and record offices. Nor does it cover individual MSS and their locations. References denote the bold entry numbers in the survey.

Institutions, including religious houses, in London are indexed by name, other institutions by place, county record offices and libraries by name. The London entries cover references to groups of records, and the city's own records.
