The Licensees index in Miscellaneous Names is now complete. Over 27,000 names have been taken from the surviving Registers of Licenses from the various Petty Sessional divisions in Hertfordshire and cover the years 1854 – 1975. Licenses are mostly for the sale of alcohol. The index shows the name of the premises where given – usually the name of a pub or hotel.

Where a licensee appears more than once at the same premises in a register, only the first date and last date is shown in the index. If you order a copy, you will receive a copy of the pages for these dates only. The register usually shows the owner of the premises; this is not listed in the index.
