Hot off the press – new titles added this week

This week 134,952 have joined the Archive.  We have added two home counties titles for England, The East Kent Gazette and the Bucks Examiner for Buckinghamshire.  We have also added to ten of our existing titles, details of those updated are in a table at the end of this post.

Newspapers often change their names, as they are bought out by competitors and expand, or contract, their reach.  Both of our new titles underwent name changes over the years, if you are looking for news of Chesham, Amersham and Ricksmansworth you will find it by searching the Bucks Examiner.  For those looking for news of Sittingbourne, Sheerness and Faversham The East Kent Gazette is the paper for you.

Title Years added
Buckinghamshire Examiner 1889-1895, 1897-1910, 1912-1941, 1955-1970, 1972-1978, 1980
East Kent Gazette 1857-1887, 1889-1894, 1912-1918, 1925-1930, 1946-1964

 

This week we’ve published papers from two ‘home counties’, landlocked Buckinghamshire lies to the north west of Middlesex, and Greater London, while Kent, a part of whose historic county was incoporated into Greater London, is to the south-east and boasts an extensive coastline.
