Chapman Codes

 

These are the Chapman three-letter codes for Country and County (Pre-1974 counties). If you use these codes as a standard then you will be understood by other genealogists world-wide and will avoid confusion with places outside the England which may have the same names, see below (Chapman codes exist for all parts of the UK and Ireland).
