For information on Tracing Gypsy Romany and Traveller Ancestors at the  Surrey History Centre.

Even if you do not have gypsy ancestors it is well worth reading the description of these little known and oft persecuted people who traveled the roads of Britain plying many different trades including: horse dealers, basket makers, beehive makers, knife grinders, tinkers, peg makers, blacksmiths and entertainers.
