The Circa Date field is used when a specific date,
either a start or completion date, is unavailable or unknown.
Instead an approximate date, usually covering a very broad period, is
used. This field can be searched by both specific dates expressed in
numbers, and by terms that describe a period of time, e.g., you can search
for houses that were built about 1800 and you'll retrieve approximately
three records. You can also search by terms such as Edwardian,
Victorian, Georgian, William and Mary, Jacobean, Elizabethan, Tudor, 20th
century, 19th century, 18th century, 17th century, and 16th century, all
of which will return records. The Circa Date field is
specifically strongest in word dates (Tudor), rather than dates expressed
as numbers (1800).
Please remember that this database is a work-in-progress and that many,
many houses have yet to have date information entered.
