I believe that ceremonial counties are defined by recent Act of Parliament,
and are not the same as the traditional ones.  For example there is a ceremonial
county of Greater London, while historically this area was part of
Kent, Essex, Surrey, Middlesex, or the City of London.

Perhaps the ABC <http://www.abcounties.co.uk/> would be able to supply traditional
county boundaries in a form suitable for importing or tracing.
