Surrey is a county in the English southeast. It’s one of the home counties (the counties of the southeast and east of England that surround London). Surrey borders Greater London, Kent, East Sussex, West Sussex, Hampshire and Berkshire. The county town of Surrey is Guildford. Surrey is split into 11 districts (ten of which are boroughs), namely, Elmbridge, Epsom and Ewell, Guildford, Mole Valley, Reigate and Banstead, Runnymede, Spelthorne, Surrey Heath, Tandridge, Waverley and Woking. Three London boroughs (Lambeth, Southwark, Wandsworth) and parts of Lewisham (Hatcham) and Bromley (Penge) were included in Surrey until 1889, when the administrative county of Surrey was formed. In addition, Croydon, Kingston upon Thames, Merton, Sutton and Richmond upon Thames were part of Surrey until 1965, when Surrey gained Spelthorne from Middlesex. Following the Local Government Act 1972, administrative counties were abolished and replaced by non-metropolitan counties. The boundaries of the non-metropolitan county of Surrey were the same as those of the administrative county, except for Gatwick Airport and some surrounding land, which was moved to West Sussex.
The records have been provided by Surrey County Council and the West Surrey Family History Society has also created transcripts of records.
