Published November 2018, the first of a five volume study into the very earliest Romany communities in the British Isles.

Each family has been traced from the 16th century through to the dawn of the 20th century, through parish records, newspaper reports and various other sources, which are drawn together here to give a complete as possible account of each family and their development.
