Britain & Ireland, Naturalisations 1603-1700
This new collection of 12,959 records may help you discover if your ancestor became a British citizen in the 17th century. The collection is derived from the  413-page “Letters of Denization and Acts of Naturalization for Aliens in England and Ireland, 1603-1700”, edited by William Arthur Shaw. Documentary sources for denization are drawn from the Patent Rolls and a number of subsidiary sources including the Signet Office Docquet Book and the Privy Seals as well as the Patent Rolls of Ireland and span the period from the reign of James I, through the Interregnum and Restoration, up to around 1700. Shaw’s book was published by The Huguenot Society of London in 1911.  The FMP collection provides an index linked to images.
