London and Middlesex

With a huge number of people found in London and surrounding areas, and the difficulty of pinpointing their birthplaces from the information they left behind them, it has been challenging to subdivide these people.  We have placed many of those technically born in Essex, Surrey and Kent within those counties, and have tried to place the rest in logical areas, according to where they indicated they were born. Please treat these places of birth with some flexibility.  Any corrections or clarification would be gratefully received.
