The following database represents the collective research of George Aldis, the late Douglas Aldous, and the distinguished American genealogist Myrtle Stevens Hyde. The records of Douglas Aldous are noted under the column headed DEWA while those of Myrtle Stevens Hyde, in the column headed MSH, are allocated her own reference numbers as used in 'The Aldous Genealogy'.

The database records instances of the name ALDHOUSE, ALDIS, ALDOUS and other variants mainly, but not exclusively, in East Anglia. The events are from the earliest records until 1840, though a few post-1840 events will be found. 1840was chosen as a cut-off point because from 1841 regular census returns, increasingly accessible, have greatly facilitated family history research. Also self evident is that the early records are those that are likely to be less easily accessible to researchers.

Users of the database will generally find the actual recorded spellings of the names, however inconsistent; no attempt has been made to rationalise or tidy up. Researchers are also advised to check all extracted events against original sources; while every attempt has been made to be accurate and faithful to the original, it is inevitable that mistakes have occurred. Needless to say, the database does not pretend to be comprehensive; it represents all events available at compilation, and will be added to as other events come to notice. Researchers who cannot find a particular event should not assume that it does not exist, merely that it has not been here recorded. Additional events will be welcome, and can be notified by email to the compiler.

It is hoped, nevertheless, that the database will prove a useful, if not invaluable aid to present generations of ALDHOUSE, ALDIS, ALDOUS and the like, representing as it does some 130 years of accumulative research by the named individuals. The work of Douglas Aldous and Myrtle Stevens Hyde can be accessed at the Suffolk Record Office, and that of George Aldis, the compiler of this database, at his website: www.aldis-day.name
