Help Subdividing Category:Parliament of England (pre-1707) MP stubs

Hi all, I do a lot of work with organizing stubs, and the largest stub categories is Category:Parliament of England (pre-1707) MP stubs, which has 2,893 associated pages. My goal is to subdivide this into categories with more manageable amounts of stubs (maybe 200 articles each). Unfortunately, I don't know much about UK/English politics, so I don't have any great ideas about how to subdivide. Does anyone at this wikiproject have any ideas of how to subdivide this, or know a better wikiproject to ask about this?

I would also note that Category:UK MP for England stubs is also an extremely large category, with 1,593 uncategorized pages, so subdivision ideas for that category would welcome as well. This is crossposted at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject United Kingdom and Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Politics of the United Kingdom -Furicorn (talk) 07:03, 4 October 2017 (UTC)

I think the large number relates to the long history of the parliament (and possibly the large number of MPs but that is a separate debate). You could divide them geographically by regions, however this may be difficult as some MPs have represented more than one constituency. I would suggest dividing by era (perhaps each hundred years) or by political party (as has been partially done at Category:UK MP for England stubs) - the number representing more than one party is quite small.— Rod talk 08:11, 4 October 2017 (UTC)

Is it possible to get this portrait added to the 16th-century English judges page as unidentified?

WikiProject Women in Red/The World Contest

Hi. In November The Women in Red World Contest is being held to try to produce new articles for as many countries worldwide and occupations as possible. There will be over $4000 in prizes to win, including Amazon vouchers and paid subscriptions. If this would appeal to you and you think you'd be interested in contributing new articles on English women during this month please sign up in the participants section. If you're not interested in prize money yourself but are willing to participate and raise money to buy books about women for others to use, this is also fine. Help would also be appreciated in drawing up the lists of missing articles. If you think of any missing articles for your project please add them to the lists by continent at Missing articles. Thankyou, and if taking part, good luck!♦ Dr. Blofeld 09:58, 16 October 2017 (UTC)
