This dataset makes accessible the uniquely comprehensive records of vagrant removal from, through, and back to Middlesex, encompassing the details of some 14,789 men and women removed (either forcibly or voluntarily) as undesirables between 1777 and 1786. It includes people ejected from London as vagrants, and those sent back to London from counties beyond.


This dataset was revised and published as a new version in April 2018
