This page was last updated on: August 10, 2020

The following abbreviations have been used throughout the Leverstock Green Chronicle when giving specific references :

A2A – Access to Archives on-line database found at http://www.a2a.org.uk/search/index.asp , then search on Leverstock Green. This constantly updated national data-base gives references to material held in nationwide archives. Generally where the A2A reference is given, I have as yet NOT referred to the original documents. [N.B. October 2018 - it would seem that the A2A website no longer works as it did a decade or so ago. The reference still stands, as that is where I obtained it.  However I would suggest visiting     http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/  which will instead give access to a great many archives. They state  "Find records from The National Archives and over 2,500 archives across the UK"  

Cha.News - Chambersbury News ( Parish magazine for Chambersbury. Give dates for publication with individual sources.)

HALS - Hertfordshire Archive and Local Studies - previously known as the Hertfordshire Record Office. The reference usually is followed by the individual reference number used to locate the document or documents for use in the Sources room. Occasionally where a document is of particular importance, it will also have its own S number giving an idea of what the document contains.

HRO - Hertfordshire Record Office. These references should all have been altered to HALS references, (see above) but the occasional one may have slipped through the net.

HTLG – Holy Trinity Church Archive – currently in possession of Barbara Chapman and catalogued 2005. References used will have the HTLG No included e.g. HTLG 1 refers to the Churchwardens’ Account Book for 1850-1890

Echo - The Evening Echo, publication dates given at each reference.

Express - Hemel Hempstead Express; the Express is the free paper produced by the H.H.Gazette. Date of publication given with each extract.

Gazette - Hemel Hempstead Gazette - NOW KNOW AS THE GAZETTE & HERALD, (ON-LINE AS HEMEL TODAY)   I will give publication dates with individual sources

GORHAM - Schedule of Manorial Records - Gorhambury Collection. This refers to information taken purely from the catalogue of documents from the Gorhambury Estate, held at HALS rather than from the specific document(s). If the document itself has been used to obtain information then it will have its own source reference detailing the reference number at the Hertfordshire Record Office.

H.Adv. - Herts Advertiser - date of publication given with each extract.

HHH&P - The Hemel Hempstead Herald and Post, publication dates given at each reference. 

Kel.Dir.- Kelley's Directory of Hertfordshire. The following years’ records were consulted:
1850,1860,1870,1878,1882,1886,1890,1898.1902,1908,1910,1912,1917,1922,1926,1929, 1933.

LGVA - Information obtained from various Leverstock Green Village Association publications and documents, and including advertisements for events displayed in the Village Hall and the various shops in the Village Centre. 

MAIL - Hemel Hempstead Mail, publication dates given at each reference.

VCH - Victoria County History for Hertfordshire, with volume and page reference where applicable. The extracts are reproduced by permission of the General Editor.

S - The suffix given to each individual source, other than those prefixed by one of the abbreviations above and followed by a number from 1- infinity and allocated in strict numerical order according to the time when a source was originally referenced. E.g. S1 was consulted originally before S53 etc. This list of references is continually being added to as new additional sources are consulted. The intention being that anyone reading the Leverstock Green Chronicle text can see immediately from whence any item of information was gleaned according to the reference given in square brackets. [ ] e.g. The following two entries show that the first information came from the Victoria County History, and the second from the Leverstock Green School Log Book.: February 25th, 1900 - Nathaniel Wishart Robinson bequeathed £500 to be invested, and the income to be applied in lighting, warming and repairing the Church.

In addition to the itemised list below, many original documents held at the Hertfordshire Archive and Local Studies (HALS) at County Hall Hertford, have been referred to, and in many instances transcribed in full. There is a separate computer file of Transcriptions, together with a printout of these and additional transcriptions undertaken by other people, which I hold at home.

Considerable information is also now obtained from various sources via the Internet, either from existing Websites/ WebPages, or from direct contact made to Barbara from various individuals via email and social media.  I will in these instances now, give direct details rather than quoting a reference number.  e.g. stating the copyright holder and/or person who sent me the photographs (or documents which I subsequently photographed myself.)  Where appropriate I will also indicate a link to a particular site, and as in the case of Heritage England's Places Photo Collection (see above left) create a button linking directly to them so the reader can undertake their own research if wished.
