Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

John Evelyn Ansell (1860-1936) was Chief Clerk of the Middlesex Deeds Registry, later the Middlesex Deeds Department of the Land Registry Office, from 1889, when Lord Truro was Registrar, until c 1921. Ansell's report of 1891 (Ref. F/ANS/014) gives a detailed picture of the operation and staffing of the Registry at that date. From the evidence in F/ANS/001, 002, 003/1 and 009 it appears that he was concerned in the 'Office of Universal Knowledge' set up by Lord Truro before 1889.
