As many as possible of all the variants and misspellings have been recorded from the General Register Office for England and Wales, including military and overseas records, since 1837. This data can be found on the Guild Web Site
Probate entries have been recorded from the dioceses of York, Lichfield, Chester, the Prerogative Court of Canterbury and elsewhere since records began until 1858, when the probate records for England and Wales were centralised. After that date all references to all know spellings are being recorded.
There is an ever growing collection of records from various sources including censuses from 1841 to 1901 and parish registers. Many trees have been developed from submissions by and in cooperation with other researchers.
