NORTHAMPTONSHIRE MARRIAGE INDEX - over 212,700 entries

Indexing project by Alan Clarke and Marilyn Ponting

                        The aim of this project is to index all marriages from the C of E parish registers for Northamptonshire. 

                    Coverage of the index includes all of t he parishes within the modern day county boundary, (with the exception of Little Bowden which is now

                    in Leicestershire  and the Soke of Peterborough which is now in Cambridgeshire).

                        Coverage is restricted to availability of parish registers held at Northampton Records Office but some entries are taken from registers still held by their

 respective churches.

                    This index also includes  some banns and entries taken from Bishops Transcripts.

                    We have finished indexing all C of E registers [deposited at NRO] between 1700-1860 (Including the soke of Peterborough).

                        You can purchase this index on four separate CD's, click here for more details.

                   

                        Entries are recorded in the following formats :-

FREE LOOK UPS

                        All entries are stored in a database which can be searched easily.  All Look Up requests are FREE, please send your email to

                    either Marilyn Ponting or Alan Clarke, please put 'Marriage Look Ups'  in the subject title of your email. Unless you state

                    otherwise all results will be on the groom's surname only.  We normally reply within a couple of days.

                   

                        Some entries were hard to decipher so please check the original parish registers whenever possible.

                    We are particularly interested in collecting 'strays', [i.e. Northants people who married in other counties], a complete list of what

                    we have is online, (now over 9,500 entries), please email us with any contributions you have, strays can include people born in

                    Northants but married elsewhere.  Two example of strays are copied below :-

                        All Northants strays are put online for other people to view, click on the button to see the web page.

                        Notes :-
                        Marston St. Lawrence (1754-1812) limited coverage taken from the bishops transcripts as the original parish registers were burnt.
                        Greatworth (1754-1812) coverage taken from both the parish registers and bishops transcripts as the original registers suffered from damp.
                        Lutton (1754-1841) all entries are from the bishop transcripts, patchy coverage in the 1754-1812 part.
                        Clapton (1754-1812) limited coverage from the BT's, original register not having survived.
