Gloucestershire & Wiltshire Quaker Registers Download

By : Gloucestershire FHS

PDF Download Version ( 3MB)

This contains the following Registers :

  • Birth Registers : 1642 – 1837
  • Burial Registers : 1655 – 1908
  • Marriage Registers : 1656 – 1908

About 1837-1840, James Bowden Digest Clerk and William Manley Recording Clerk of the Society of Friends compiled three registers of Births, Marriages & Burials from, it is believed, the minutes of Monthly Meeting Registers created by individual Meeting Houses in the Gloucestershire & Wiltshire area commencing around 1650.

These Registers held by Gloucestershire Archives have been transcribed together with a fourth register of later compilation onto this Download.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

The original Monthly Meeting Registers are now in the National Archives at Kew possibly under RG6 & Images of the same can been viewed on The Society of Genealogists Web Site. Please bear in mind that the original documents from 1650 to 1837 were transcribed in 1840 and these have been transcribed again in 2011. Therefore these indexes should only be used as a guide until the original documents can be viewed. Please read the Transcribers notes by Gloucester Family History Society for more information. However to whet the appetite notable families such as Joseph Fry chocolate maker can be found as well as faraway places such as America the Caribbean, and English Counties from the North to South .

Gloucestershire Diocese Burial Index 1813-1851 Download

By : Gloucestershire FHS

PDF Download Version (15MB)

The Gloucestershire Burial Index contains a transcription of the 306 parish and 49 non-conformist burial registers that are available in the Gloucestershire Record Office.

This covers the area within the Diocese of Gloucester. It does not cover those parishes in the far south of the county which fall within the Diocese of Bristol.

The period covered is at least from 1813 to 1851, or from the time the register begins if later than 1813. In some cases, there are details of burials outside this period.

St. Andrew’s Miserden: Monumental Inscriptions: Download version

Survey of Memorials in St Andrew’s Church and Churchyard, Miserden 2014-15.

Introduction.

This database of Memorials is based mainly on their physical inspection and photographic recording over the 12 month period between July 2014 and July 2015. However, it does also refer to four other documents.

1. A hand-written set of indexes of Baptisms, Marriages and Burials at Miserden from 1574 to 1974 which is currently held by the church. I understand that this was probably prepared by a church-warden who extracted the information from the Parish registers. They are remarkable documents, neatly written and organised by date and surname – not a simple task before computerisation. Where relevant I have given the burial date from this index as well as the date of death from the gravestone. They don’t always tally and researchers should always check the original Parish registers to minimise any transcription errors.

2. The “Record of Church furnishings” for St Andrew’s Church prepared 1995-97 by The National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS). This provides enormous detail of the Memorials inside the church, including the stained glass windows. A few of the older inscriptions are in latin and, in most of these cases, an English translation is contained in the NADFAS report.

3. Ralph Bigland’s “Historical, Monumental, and Genealogical Collections relative to the County of Gloucester”. This was first published at the end of the eighteenth century but was reissued in the 1990s by Bristol & Gloucestershire Archaeological Society. Three pages of this relate to the Miserden inscriptions and they, in theory, list the gravestones existing in the churchyard c1790, but it appears far from comprehensive: there are many current gravestones which pre-date 1790 but which are not listed by Bigland. However there are many listed in his book which no longer exist and, for the sake of completeness, I have included all these in this database. For copyright reasons, in these cases, I have only used the name and year of death (supplemented by the burial date from the register index) and researchers will need to refer to Bigland to see what, if any, further information is available.

Tim Randles. June 2016

A CD version  is available; please note photographs (approx. 360) of Memorial Inscriptions where available are only on the CD version, Not the download version (due to Web Site upload constraints.

St. Katherine Church Matson Monumental Inscriptions: Download version

Survey of Memorials in St Katharine’s Church and Churchyard,

Matson, Gloucester. 2015-16.

Introduction.

This database of Memorials is based mainly on their physical inspection and photographic recording over the period between July 2015 and May 2016. However, it does also reference the following documents:

1. The Church burial registers and their transcriptions. It should be noted that there are occasionally discrepancies between the information in the register and that written on the memorials. The registers do contain information in some cases about the location of the grave, cross referenced to the churchyard layout plans (see below).

2. Ralph Bigland’s “Historical, Monumental, and Genealogical Collections relative to the County of Gloucester”. This was first published at the end of the eighteenth century but was reissued in the 1990s by Bristol & Gloucestershire Archaeological Society. Two pages of this relate to the Matson inscriptions and they, in theory, list the gravestones and memorials existing in the churchyard c1790, but it may be far from comprehensive. There are many listed in his book which are no longer apparent and, for the sake of completeness, I have

included all these in this database. For copyright reasons, in these cases, I have only used the name and year of death (supplemented by information from the burial register) and researchers will need to refer to Bigland to see what, if any, further information is available.

3. A plan of the old churchyard originally “revised and renumbered” in Easter 1940 by the Rector, Francis H Charles and subsequently updated through the years, although it has become clear that some of the subsequent additions have not been plotted with any accuracy.

4. Other sketch plans, supplied by the church, of the location of modern graves, using the
modern burial register number.
