Licensees in the Miscellaneous Names index

The petty sessional divisional alehouse licence registers record the issue, renewals, transfers and removal of licences for the sale of alcohol. Later registers also include other licenses, such as billiards. These are now being indexed by name of the licensee, and can also be searched by name of premises, although this isn't always given. The original document might also show the exact nature of the licence, the owner of the premises and occasionally other information.

Indexes for the following divisions are currently on Hertfordshire Names Online, with more to follow in the coming weeks:

Albury 1872 - 1953. This division comprised the parishes of Albury, Little Hadham, Much Hadham, Meesden (until 1899), Brent Pelham, Furneux Pelham and Stocking Pelham.

Absent voters in the Miscellaneous Names Index

From 1918 separate registers were kept of anyone who had applied to vote by post or proxy. The majority of entries are for members of the armed forces, and the registers give their regiment, ship etc. as well as their rank and number. All surviving Hertfordshire registers held at Hertfordshire Archives and Local Studies have been indexed by name: 1918-1931 (missing St Albans and Hitchin divisions for 1923, and all divisions except St Albans for 1929). The index gives names and places, view the original or order a copy to see the details.
