You need not restrict your surnames to Kent interests. In general we restrict the definition of 'London' to the City only, i.e. prior to the formation of the County of London in 1889. For areas outside the city, please use Middlesex, Essex, Surrey, Kent etc. as appropriate.

Please also note the following points :-

If you are making a study of a particular town or village, or a specific subject area connected with family history, we can include that too.
