Are we able to have Doctors_Commons added in City of London please. 

I saw Inner Temple, and Free Men of the City of London, its a similar type of thing, Law Society attached to the ecclesiastical courts (College of Civilians), which had a campus, on Knightrider St, people worked and lived there. Some children born there. 3 houses of residence, great hall, quadrangle, wills office etc.laugh

OR smiley Can I do it myself?  I'm in the Categorization Group, but have only entered Iwi in NZ Maori, and some cemeteries.  I think I have an antipodean complex.  So interested because loads of my Ancestors pre-1850 are from there, but apprehensive because I don't know much about UK.

First we have to figure out what to call it.  Officially, "College of Doctors of Law exercent in the Ecclesiastical and Admiralty Courts", or for short, "College of Civilians", or commonly "Doctors' Commons", which has an apostrophe in Wikipedia, but not everywhere.

Might work better just to have a category for "Doctors of Civil Law", which would be much the same thing.
Oops, can you please check what I did, before I add more profiles to it, like 20plus.

Doctors' Commons in terms of the Physical Location.  If you go to the category itself, I wrote a short paragraph with an image.

On the census: Doctors' Commons is used as a Birthplace
In a number of Wills, A person who lives there is referred to as being "of Doctors' Commons".
