Quorn Parish Registers

Birth, Marriage & Death Records

Parish Registers began in 1538 and are invaluable to the family and local historian. Unfortunately very few of the earliest registers survive, as few instructions were given and many were written on scraps of paper with minimal information. In 1597 there was a requirement to keep records on parchment and to rewrite entries for previous years, however in practice, the rewriting did not always happen.

Parish Registers for Quorn go back to 1576, although the writing is difficult to read and they were initially written in Latin. As years move on, records contain more information and become more structured. Unless families were particularly wealthy, their first documentary evidence is likely to be in Parish Registers, in the form of baptisms, marriages and burials.

When using Parish Registers, especially the early ones, remember that spelling is largely phonetic and also that although every attempt has been made to be accurate, many registers have deteriorated and were difficult to read. A few records are missing or are very sketchy, this applies particularly to the Commonwealth Period 1653 to 1660.
