The gazetteer of England and Wales edited by J.H.F. Brabner, FRGS, was published in 1895 by William Mackenzie. Originally published in six volumes and comprising over 200 pages, it includes over 25,000 individual entries and includes full colour maps of every English and Welsh county, plus plans of the major cities.

The gazetteer is available on British Origins, as digitised images of the original books, including the maps and town plans, and with the entire text fully searchable. You can search for the entries for specific places and for any appearance in the text of the place name you are interested in.

A series of maps, specially produced for Mackenzie's Comprehensive Gazetteer of England and Wales, are available online for all counties of England and Wales plus street plans for the principal cities and towns.
The county maps, coloured to show the political divisions, show the natural features - mountains, rivers lakes and estuaries - and the main roads, railways and canals. There is also a map of the whole of England and Wales, showing the county boundaries.
