Christian names in local and family history by George Redmonds ( )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 949 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Surnames have always provided key links in historical research. This groundbreaking new work shows that first names can also be highly significant for those tracing genealogies or studying communities. Standard works on first names have always concentrated on etymology. George Redmonds goes much further: he believes that every name has a precise origin and history of expansion, which can be regional or even local; up to c. 1700 it may even have centred on one family. This text fully explores the implications of this belief for local and family history, and challenges many published assumptions on the historical frequency of first names

Here we explore 25 glorious examples. The emphasis is on the story behind the map: what it reveals about its creator and users, from the first explorers to the railway builders.

Spies of the First World War : under cover for king and kaiser by James Morton ( Book )
2 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When Colonel James Edmonds argued for a British secret service in 1907, officials mocked that he had ̀espionage on the brain'. But fracturing European relations and the resulting explosion in spy activity were to prove Edmonds' prescience. By the time of the First World War undercover agents operated in cities from Geneva to Paris, New York to Moscow, and German spies were being shot in the Tower of London. Spies of the First World War balances accessible history of a profession fashioned by conflict with human stories of heroism and cowardice, brilliance and incompetence, loyalty and betrayal

Princes of Wales : royal heirs in waiting by D. M Loades ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For over 700 years the title Prince of Wales has been awarded to royal heirs waiting to accede to the throne of England. They did not always achieve it - even the highest in the land have been subject to disease, death and the fortunes of war, or of politics. Few have held the position for more than ten years, and some for barely a year - while others have lived for decades in the shadow of the throne. Yet all who inhabit this intriguing role have left their stamp upon it, and it has been shaped and relished by some of the greatest personalities of the age." "Princes of Wales explores the stories of a remarkable range of royal heirs, from the charismatic Black Prince and the dissolute Prince Hal to the ill-fated Arthur and the flamboyant Prince Regent - as well as the colourful characters of the 20th century. It shows how the role reflects and defines the spirit of its age, be it medieval chivalry or Tudor myth-making, Regency excess or 1920s glamour. It charts the legendary disputes of sovereigns and their sons, and shows how different characters responded to an evolving role and a changing world. Illustrated with paintings, photographs and original documents from the National Archives, this is a compelling portrait of those who have held this uniquely privileged yet often frustrating position - the men who would be king."--BOOK JACKET
