Public Record Office documents about Badsey

The Public Record Office is best known for census records but its huge archives also include many other materials from government departments. Listed below are records which include the word Badsey in their description - usually they are about the village of Badsey but a few refer to people called Badsey. More information can be found on the Public Record Office website, but to see the actual records you will probably have to travel to Kew or one of their other archives in London.
