Burke's Peerage & Gentry
In 1999 rights to update and publish Burke's Landed Gentry became available. After a gap of thirty years, a team of genealogists worked to produce the 19th edition of Burke's Landed Gentry, Volume 1, Kingdom in Scotland. This was published in August 2001 as a printed book and online database. English and Welsh articles from the 18th edition are available online and are currently being updated as we receive family information. At that point our new company was formed and named Burke's Landed Gentry.
Some years earlier, Morris Genealogical Books updated and published the 106th edition of Burke's Peerage & Baronetage. This title had also been out of print for some years. The book was well received and in 2001 Burke's Landed Gentry bought the rights from Morris to the 106th edition, bringing together the two titles under one publisher for the first time in many years. The organisation then changed its name to Burke's Peerage & Gentry to reflect the new acquisition.
In January 2002 content from Burke's Peerage & Baronetage was added to our online database. An update and expansion of the title was included in the plan to publish the 107th edition of Burke's Peerage & Baronetage in October 2003. We were delighted to retain key members of the editorial team which worked on the 106th edition, including Editor-in-Chief Charles Mosley.
