Alphabetical Order

The indexes appearing on this website are filed in strict alphabetical order by both Surname and First Names, so when checking the indexes, keep this in mind. Where a question mark "?" is used to denote an unknown letter or name, the alphabetical sorting will put these "?" at the beginning of the A to Z sequence. Where no letter or symbol appears in a space for a name, the alphabetical sorting will put these blank spaces at the end of the A to Z sequence.


Most of the records transcribed have been recorded as they appeared on the microfilm copy of the records, because of this, if you are searching for a particular first name, also check to see if it is abbreviated.


Also check to see if the first name has been spelt in Latin, and example is William = Gulielmus.

Question Marks

I have used question marks in two ways, the first is to denote an un-transcribed letter. The second is where I have doubt in what is the actual name, in which case there is a space between the letters of the name and the question mark.

Old & New Style Calendars

Most of the dates (especially those that I have personally transcribed) have been recorded as they appear on the microfilm of the parish records, so take note that dates that are pre 1752 have been rendered old style. When you see in the indexes, say 1732, you will have to check the parish record from the 25th of March 1732 to the 24th of March of the following year. Please click here for an explanation, (after viewing the page, use your browser's back button to return to this page).

Transcription Process

All records have been either transcribed straight from microfilm onto computer or transcribed from microfilm onto hand written notes, and then copied to computer.

Possible Errors

Every attempt is made to transcribe correctly all names appearing in these indexes. Also every attempt is made to enter the data as accurately as possible. No responsibility will be taken by myself for any errors that occurred, either in the transcribing of parish records or the data entry onto computer. Please remember that this index is based on transcriptions that have not been independently checked. The Indexes are considered as a guide only, so it is recommended that the original record (or microfilmed copy of the original record) should always be checked.

Good Luck

I hope all researchers find great benefit and assistance with these indexes. Happy hunting!
