The History of Parliament is a major academic project to create a scholarly reference work describing the members, constituencies and activities of the Parliament of England and the United Kingdom. The published volumes, to date, contains around 24,000 biographical articles on MPs from 1386 to 1832, and well over 2,000 articles on constituency politics and elections over the same period, as well as our introductory surveys which analyse and introduce this information. All of this material, save the most recently published volumes (1604-29) is available online at the History of Parliament online website.
Based in Bloomsbury, London, the History’s academics are currently researching both the House of Commons and the House of Lords in the medieval, early modern and Victorian periods. More information can be found on our website.
