The Return of Owners of Land, 1873 was published in two volumes in 1875, and lists people who owned more than one acre of land, for most of England and Wales. It gives their name and rough address, and the extent and rough value of the land, but does not list where the land was.
There are only eight Doveys listed across the two volumes. These are as follows:
|County||Name of Owner||Address of Owner||Extent of Land|
(Acre, Rood, Perch)

|Buckinghamshire||Dovey, Geo.||Warwick St. S.W.||1 3 31||148 –|
