Ancestry uploads Hampshire and Surrey datasets

Some new English collections on Ancestry (www.ancestry.co.uk):

Hampshire, England, Allegations for Marriage Licences, 1689-1837
http://search.ancestry.co.uk/search/db.aspx?dbid=9147

Surrey, England, Licensed Victuallers, 1785-1903
http://search.ancestry.co.uk/search/db.aspx?dbid=4835

Surrey, England, Jury-Qualified Freeholders and Copyholders, 1696-1824

Surrey, England, Land Tax Records, 1780-1832
http://search.ancestry.co.uk/search/db.aspx?dbid=4792

The Hampshire records are digitised from Hampshire Allegations for Marriage Licences Granted by the Bishop of Winchester, 1689–1837. Vols. 1 and 2, published by The Harleian Society in London in 1893. The Surrey records have been sourced from Surrey History Centre, Woking, Surrey. Full details via the links.

The following collections have also apparently been updated, but there's no indication on Ancestry as to how or why:

Surrey, England, Baptisms, 1813-1912
Surrey, England, Marriages, 1754-1937
Surrey, England, Burials, 1813-1987
Surrey, England, Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, 1538-1812
