English Parish Records: More than Hatch, Match and Dispatch


Most people are familiar with the baptism, marriage and burial records found in parish records but there are many other wonderful parish records that can help in genealogical research. These include Vestry minutes, Churchwarden Accounts, settlement certificates, examinations and removal orders, Parish poor rates and relief distribution, Parish apprenticeships, parish payments for work done within the parish, parish assisted emigration and more.
