David Brind's exhaustive study of the military and silver/goldsmith Brinds (including internet sites covering the Indian Mutiny).

Pictures of the hamlet of Brind and the village of Aldbourne. Plus extracts from The Dabchick (the village magazine), from Ida Gandy's book The Heart of a Village (about Aldbourne, Wiltshire) and the entire Jefferies Land, a history of Swindon and its environs published in 1896.

A thorough Brind family history assembled by General Sir John Brind, in March 1936.

All Brinds listed in the British 1871, 1881 & 1901 censuses and the indexes of births, marriages and deaths back to 1837.

Probably best of all is the exhaustive study of the 1841 census. Whilst this census is limited in its usefulness because it mostly does not contain exact ages (adults usually have their ages rounded to the nearest five so that 42 became 40) and it does not reveal the relationships of the people in the household, it is the oldest of the national censuses containing names. The inclusion of this census is the main reason for this revision of this package in October 2006.
