General Guide


23: Family, Personal and Private Estate Records


This section includes individuals and family’s personal, family and private estate records. As these collections are usually quite small, a phrase such as “Diary” has been added to the description to indicate that these are the only records we hold. Full catalogue entries will be found in our online catalogue www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/librarycatalogue (use the “Former catalogue”). To find the entries, do a Classification search for the Manuscript number given below in bold, adding leading zeroes if necessary to give the number five digits (e.g. Ms 00544, Ms 05345 or Ms 24199.

If the collection consists of a single document, it will be given in the following way in this guide: Ms 5345; if the collection consists of more than one document, the first manuscript reference number only will be given with a dash to indicate further numbers, e.g. Ms 34978-. In order to find the entries in our online catalogue, please just enter the first number in a classification search, without a dash, e.g. Ms 34978. This search will find the collection level description which shows the full range of manuscript numbers for each collection.

Alternatively, entries can be found using an Author Search in our online catalogue. When searching for personal names it is wise initially to search under surname and first name only. You can then select the appropriate person from the list of brief entries which then appears, guided by dates and any epithets shown.

The names below have been given in the form in which they appear in the online catalogue. If the name appears in the form of ATKINS, John d.1838, this indicates that the date is part of the name; if the name appears in the form of CECIL, Sir Robert (1563-1612), this indicates that the dates are not part of the name as it appears in our online catalogue. Similarly, epithets such as Rev., Dr., and Major are shown below in brackets as they do not form part of the name online. Confusingly, the epithet Sir does often form part of the online name but it is unwise to include it in an Author search as the search will then fail to find the person in question. Sir has been placed in brackets in the names below, for that reason.

A few records may require proof of identity; details are given in the online catalogue – please check before making a special journey.

The catalogue is available in hard copy at the Manuscripts Section's enquiry desk.

Unless otherwise stated, dates refer to the period for which information is given in the records, not to the date of their compilation. Covering dates only are given.

Readers interested in a particular family or individual not mentioned below may wish to conduct an author search for references to personal papers, as some have been considered too slight to mention here but are included in the online catalogue.
