Born and brought up on the outskirts of the City of London, I became interested in family history before I reached my teens. During these early days I was privileged to experience the search rooms of Somerset House with its spiral staircases and galleried shelves of registers before the General Register Office moved to better accommodation - a wonderful place for a 12 year old boy.
In my spare time, I have undertaken to compile a who's who of the common councilmen, the sheriffs, the alderman, and the lord mayors of the City of London. Currently the entries for the councilmen run to over 465 pages and a third of a million words which will soon be ready for publication.
