WEEKE LOCAL HISTORY
WOLVERTON PARISH REGISTER TRANSCRIPTS
This page is a temporary home for transcripts of the Parish Records of St Catherine's Church in Wolverton.
The release contains over 160 years between 1717 – 1880. These ranges have generated 800 baptisms, 550 burials and 270 marriages. The transcriptions have been limited by the fact that the registers for events before 1717 have been lost.
There are likely to be two types of errors in the transcriptions. There are the Transcribers personal errors and with no collaborators there was no chance these would be found. The second much larger group of errors are poor or feint handwriting in the registers. Often the Transcriber has been able to decode the writing but where this has failed or produced clearly incorrect transcriptions, the Transcriber has marked the entry with ’(?)’. This makes it easy to find the offending entries and so I would welcome any feedback where someone can decode the poor handwriting or my errors.
I can be contacted at this email address.
