Two centuries of non-conformist history go online
"The names and details of half a million UK radicals and religious dissenters covering a period of 225 years are available online for the first time.
"Thousands of original, paper records held at the London Metropolitan Archive detailing the baptism, marriage and burial records of some of the most famous British non-conformists, including Daniel Defoe, William Blake and John Stuart Mill, have been digitised.
"But alongside the more famous names are the details of 224,000 ordinary men and women dating back to the late 17th century, people who risked persecution by refusing to conform to the doctrine of the established, Anglican Church."
