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

All records have been either transcribed straight from microfilm onto
computer or transcribed from microfilm onto hand written notes, and then
copied to computer.
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.
I hope all researchers find great benefit and assistance with these
indexes. Happy hunting!
