The Journal

The Society's Journal has been produced three or four times a year since 1968. It is usually 40–50 pages in length, and contains four or five substantial articles on matters of interest to Society members, together with editorial material and letters. There are occasional extended supplements: for example, The Custances and their Family Circle by L. H. M. Hill, and Parson Woodforde and the Tax System  by R. L. Winstanley.

Free downloads of the Journal and its indexes

The Journal is now available for free download from this site. Editions published in the past five years are available only to paid-up members of the Society.

The scanning and digitisation of a run of 206 Journals published 1968–2023 was performed with great speed and efficiency in summer 2023 by Archive-Vault of Rackheath, near Norwich. Editions since 2023 are uploaded to the website as they are published.

Also available for download is a set of indexes to the Journal, covering the full period from 1968 to the present and arranged under Names, Places, Subjects, Authors, Book reviews. Each index appears on a separate spreadsheet. The complete file is downloadable in .xls format and may be opened in MS Excel (or compatible app) or loaded into the Numbers app on a Mac. The indexes are updated regularly, the date of the most recent version being shown on the front sheet of the document.
