British database site Familyrelatives.com added Britain’s Victorian “Doomsday Book” showing who owned land in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland more than 100 years ago.

The book, published in 1873, includes landowner returns that provide the name and address of every owner, the amount of land held, and the yearly rental valuation of holdings that are larger than an acre.

More than 320,000 landowners owned an acre or more, representing 1 percent of the population of the United Kingdom at the time. Nearly 850,000 owned less than an acre. London was excluded from the returns.

To search, click the Search tab on Familyrelatives’ home page, then scroll down to the Land Records heading and choose a country.

The Doomsday records are available only with a Familyrelatives.com subscription (about $50 a year); not as a pay-per-view option.
