We have a lot of information available on East Ilsley, the people who lived here and events that happened in the village. We will gradually be adding more information to the web-site in the form of PDF files that you can view. The first sets of data to be made available are the feature articles that are in the newsletters, census files and other name-rich resources, and poor law records. Click on the links below to go directly to these sections.

Newsletters – feature articles:

The Society usually produces two newsletters each year, with news of what sort of research is in progress and notices of exhibitions and displays of interest to the village. Each one includes a feature article on some aspect of our researches. The list below shows the research articles from the newsletters, grouped by subject matter.

Census files:

More files will be added to this section as transcriptions are checked and will also include other documents which have more limited scope (e.g. only heads of households) but cover time periods before the formal censuses of 1841 to 1921.
