South Derbyshire Parish Register Transcripts
Repton & Gresley Hundred, South Derbyshire
Parish Register Transcripts
Gresley, St Mary & St George's Baptisms prior to c. 1840 have been extracted from Bishops
Transcripts by the LDS church, and can therefore be accessed via the IGI.
I have started my baptisms transcriptions from 1841, and have so far managed
to complete the 1100 odd entries up to 1860. I have spent more time on
marriages, resulting in a complete transcription of almost a century. This
extends from 1783, when the marriages were first entered in a separate
register, until 1881. Many thanks to Anna
Arrol for assistance with this part of the project. I'm
in the process of transcribing burials, and have completed the period from
1695, when the general register commenced, until 1812.
St Peter's The series of Stapenhill parish registers between 1770
and 1800 are conspicuously absent from the IGI, and have not even, as far
as I am aware, been filmed by the LDS Church. The Bishop's Transcripts
for this parish appear to be incomplete. This transcription of the baptisms
between 1770 and 1800, which has been very kindly provided for inclusion
on this web site by Val
Kennedy, is therefore a very useful addition to the collection.
I will take the responsibility for any errors that have crept into the
N.B. The parish of Stapenhill included the joint chapelry
of Stanton & Newhall until 1833, after which date Newhall had its own
registers (see below).
If anyone is able to assist by providing continuous i.e. not just selected
or single surname, extracts from the Stapenhill general, baptism, marriage
or burial registers from this or other periods, any additions would be
gratefully received. The LDS controlled extraction programme for the IGI
is very incomplete for Stapenhill, and any contributions would be valuable
additions to the resource.
St John's "Stanton and Newhall form a joint township and chapelry ... The church
... was opened ... 9th July 1832 ..." (Bagshaw, 1846). Gill
Castle has spent an enormous amount of time transcribing the Newhall
parish registers, and has very kindly allowed me to put them onto this
site. Once again, I must claim the responsibility of any errors that have
been inadvertently created during the indexing process. You may realize
that the bulk of the baptisms (until 1875) and marriages are already included
in the IGI. However, Gill's transcriptions, which were taken from microfilms
of the the original registers at Matlock, rather than Bishop's Transcripts,
will be useful for those wishing to conduct more detailed research. In
particular, the marriages provide a great deal more information than is
available from the IGI.
I also have, by kind courtesy of Gill
Castle, burials for the period 17 Aug 1872 to 23 Sep 1874. If anyone
has those for the intervening period (1865-1872), either hard copy or in
electronic format, or has access to a copy of the registers and has the
opportunity to transcribe it, please get in touch with me.
Solney, St Mary's Although most of the Newton Solney parish registers have been extracted
from Bishop's Transcripts by the LDS church and appear in the IGI, I have
examined them in some detail, and will include my transcripts on this site
for various reasons. The marriage entries, for example, provide a lot of
additional information, which is often of great value to genealogical research.
Burials, of course, will be of particular interest to those with Newton
Solney ancestors, since they don't feature on the IGI at all.
St Stephen's None of the Woodville St Stephen's parish registers appear in the IGI.
The parish was created in December 1846, out of portions of the parishes
of Hartshorne and Ashby-de-la-Zouch, and straddles the Derbyshire-Leicestershire
boundary. Microfilms were kindly made available for purchase by John Palmer,
and are being transcribed & indexed by myself. Later years will be
added as and when I have time.
