There have been no previous attempts to evaluate the quantitative importance of venereal diseases in modern Britain’s demographic and epidemiological history. This paper will present new research undertaken with Kevin Siena providing estimates on the prevalence of venereal disease in late Georgian England, including London. The estimates will then be compared with figures published by Simon Szreter for England and Wales and for London in the early 1910s.
