|Here are some lists of people who were in the news. Naturally, this is not a definitive database! By the nature of their activity it is quite likely they afforded certain media coverage. It’s important to remember that it wasn’t only criminals (or the accused) who were in the news. Victims were also featured as well as a great number of those involved in a range of activity from business to divorce, from sport to probate. The range is endless.See also the ‘Historic Databases’ drop-down menu at the top of this page for links to my current online free archive.

The best way to see the past is to look inside the news. I can search British local, national and international news items published in UK national, regional and local newspapers between the 1750′s to the early 20th century.
