Original research by the Kennington Chartist Project research group. Supported by Katrina Navickas
Map showing Lambeth and Southwark subscribers to the Chartist Land Plan in the 1840s. Click on the pins for more details.
Work in progress…detailed histories coming soon!
There are two parts to the research:
– Mapping the Lambeth and Southwark addresses so we get a sense of the distribution and location of local Chartists, and match this to our local knowledge of the areas.
– Detailed research in the census, drawing out some of the characters and stories that might emerge.
The data used for the mapping was from a transcription of entries into the register of subscribers to the Chartist Land Plan. For more on the Chartist Land Plan see Mark Crail’s: http://www.chartistancestors.co.uk/chartist-land-plan-1845-1850/
This data was collected from the Chartist land plan register by volunteers from the University of the U3A (University of the Third Age) and kindly made available to us by Peter Cox.
ABOUT THE RESEARCH GROUP
The inaugural meeting of the Kennington Chartist Project research group was at the Beehive Pub, 60 Carter St, on Tuesday 15th May 2018. The research group was a small group of local volunteers interested in developing original research on the Chartist presence and impact in Lambeth and Southwark, with the advice and support of historian Katrina Navickas. The research group met at the Lambeth Archives, Minet Library, 52 Knatchbull Road, London SE5 9QY, usually on the first Monday evening of the month, where it benefited from the helpful assistance of the Lambeth Archives archivists.
