New on Ancestry: Web: England, London Lives Index, 1690-1832

The source University of Sheffield website at www.londonlives.org/boasts "240,000 manuscripts from eight archives and fifteen datasets, giving access to 3.35 million names."
The new Ancestry web-scraped index has 1,653,830 names. Ancestry provides little by way of detail on the sources so check www.londonlives.org/static/Project.jsp to see if there might have something of interest.
I found a man, who is likely my four times great grandfather serving on several coroner's juries in the 1790s.
