Berkshire return of owners of land, 1873 (CD)

CD Version

Berkshire return of owners of land, 1873 Available in two versions/formats:

1) microfiche (West Surrey FHS), 2) CD (Archive CD Books/Family History Research Ltd, 2001) ISBN 1-84551-151-4

Both versions contain facsimiles of Berkshire entries extracted from the national return, including the original introduction, which it is recommended you read, as it details what Parliament had hoped to include, the problems they had collecting the data and how they merged names and acres to create the final alphabetical list (by county) of name and abode of each “owner” (some holders of 99-year leases were included, and only one was named of a joint ownership), the estimated extent and the gross estimated rental. In the CD version names are grouped in “Bookmarks”, but the Acrobat search facility (Ctrl F or the binocular icon) for finding a particular place didn’t work for me.
