- You may not be sure of your own ancestor’s name.
- Your ancestor may have used different names or variations of their name throughout their life.
- Titles may be clues to property ownership, occupations, rank or status within the community.
- If your ancestor was both the landlord and occupier, they generally owned the land.
- If the property was an estate, there may be manorial records.
- If it was a business, there may be other commercial records.
- Look for variant spellings of the names. You should also look for nicknames and abbreviated names.
