New titles added March | The British Newspaper Archive Blog


New titles this month! March

March has been a great month at the Archive.  We have added eight brand new titles this month including the Rutland Echo and Leicestershire Advertiser.  In bringing online a newspaper for England’s smallest county we now have a newspaper for every county in England.  And we won’t stop there.  Our England collection will continue to grow. And watch this space for similar ‘country completion’ announcements.

This month we are particularly pleased to announce the addition of issues from the 1850s and 60s for the Shipping and Mercantile Gazette, which later merged with Lloyd’s List (1884).

This month also saw the addition of several titles for Ireland, including the intriguing Irish Society. The weekly paper, which called itself ‘the only society journal in Ireland’, did not publish reports on politics or wider news. Instead, it focused on society events such as engagements and marriages, soirees and parties. Our coverage includes issues for the period 1920-1924 which saw civil war break out in Ireland.

  • I got such a good information on this topic it’s very interesting one. You made a good site and giving us such a great information on this topic it’s amazing.

    • Thank you! We loving getting feedback and are thrilled that you enjoy the website. We’ll share similar blog posts throughout the year highlighting new additions to The Archive so be sure to check back in!

  • After several years still nothing of the Torquay times or Herald Express added 🙁 beginning to think we are a forgotten town. Thank god I never made a subscription!

  • Are you likely to move the Newbury Weekly News up the waiting list any time soon? I’ve enjoyed pursuing the good, the bad and the ugly (warts and all) on my paternal side from the West Country to the Black Country, but I’d love to see Newbury news as I reckon it’s likely to cover north Hampshire, just over the border., and throw some light on my maternal history.
