Archive years:

Part of the KM Group digital archive, The South Eastern Gazette (1852-1912), formerly the Maidstone Gazette, was a major regional title for the south-east of England.

Kent Messenger say, “You can view the archive from 1852 to 1912 for free (in the UK) thanks to a grant from the - Your Heritage Lottery Fund and a dedicated group of volunteers who have worked on this project”.

By offering (free in the UK) access to these pages the KM Group hopes this complete archive will not only offer schools, colleges and universities a unique learning tool to explore Kent’s history during the Victorian and Edwardian eras but give the wider community a fascinating snapshot of life in the county.

From transport to technology, health and education, crime and politics, these pages contain stories that will fascinate anyone who has a link with Kent and particularly those researching family history.”
