family history research - focus on surrey

Surrey is situated to the south of London and originally stretched from Wimbledon in the north-east to Guildford in the south-west and  in the north. Part of the north-east of the county has been absorbed into Greater London although Surrey did also gain part of the old county of Middlesex (Spelthorne).

The county town is Guildford, although somewhat weirdly County Hall is located in Kingston-upon-Thames, which was originally part of the historic county of Surrey but has been part of Greater London along with several other boroughs since 1965. The Surrey History Centre is located in Woking and holds the historical records for Surrey.
