Originally written by Sir William Musgrave and compiled from his extensive library, this enormous work is an alphabetical list of peoples names, their date of death and reference to the source of the information.

For the most part the people mentioned belong to the middle to upper classes of society, although there are quite frequent mentions such as:

ACTON, Vincent, a swineherd near Worcester. 9 Aug. 1764. (LM 485; GM 398). LM 485 refers to The London Magazine and GM refers to The Gentlemans Magazine.

BATEMAN, Mathew, wheelright, Whitechapel. 17 Sept 1761 (LM 506; GM 430).

BROWN, William, farmer, at Skeffington in Leicestershire. April 1791 (GM 385).

They are all pre 1800 ... and at a quick glance I see that most are in the 1700s and 1600s, but that there are also a great number much earlier. The earliest I spotted (in the first few pages of the ‘A’s) was in the year 1421.

The whole set of twenty three original volumes was transcribed by the Harleian Society and published between 1899 and 1901 in six volumes. This CD is a facsimile of these six volumes.

This CD contains high quality scanned images of the whole of the original book, and has been bookmarked for easy navigation. Pages can be browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
