London Dutch Church Registers 1568-1872 London Dutch Church Registers 1568-1872. London Dutch Church Register of Marriages, Confessions, Membership and Banns 1568 - 1872 This register contains the attestation of certificates of membership, confessions of guilt, certificates of marriages and betrothals, publications of banns etc between 1568 to 1872. Whilst the register of marriages etc is very useful, it is fascinating to read the confessions of guilt which tell of the moral opinions and views of this community in the past.

Example:

1585 3148 Susanna Liebaerts, spinster, who misconducted herself with a young man under promise of marriage. But as, through his death, that marriage cannot take place, the Community is informed of her repentance, in order, they may not be offended when they see her appear at the Lord's Supper.

3127 15 January 1579. Pieter Persoons, a widower accused by his maid-servant of having misconducted himself with her, and who finally married someone else, outside the Dutch Church. Clearly, little escaped this community's notice!

Fully searchable by name, this book is invaluable for those with Dutch ancestors living in London. Ref 1264 Price £14.75

The Register Books of the Fourth Classis in the Province of London 1646-1659 The Register Books of the Fourth Classis in the Province of London 1646-1659. This is a most unusual book.

During the English Civil War, Presbyterian ministers and church councils were established in London's churches. These people had to be proposed and vetted (to ensure that they were sympathetic with the new government). Furthermore they had to be seen to be promoting the new government in their sermons, and giving thanks for the various victories of the time.

This book contains transcripts of the proposals for the new ministers and church councils of each of those churches, plus records of their support for the government, and letters relating to the lack of the right words being used in their sermons!

Wonderful fascinating stuff for the hitorian of the English Civil War, plus of course, containing lots of information and names of use to the family historian. Ref 8116 Price £12.00

London Marriage Licences 1521-1869 London Marriage Licences 1521-1869. Transcripts of licences granted from the Bishop of London's Office (1521 to 1828), the Dean and Chapter of Westminster's Office (1599 to 1699), the Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury (1543 to 1869) and the Vicar General's Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury (1660 to 1679).

Note that these contain lists of licences granted in a particular diocese, but they include details of marriage licences relating to people all over the country, and are very valuable sources of family history information, as they include parents' names, villages and towns of residence, etc. The book's title is a little misleading, as there are few licences post 1800 included. The work is not totally comprehensive, but does contain many thousands of marriage licences.

Four large volumes with a wealth of information for family historians. Marriage licences gove so much valuable information such as ages, places of residence, and importantly in many cases, fathers' names, etc. which were not stated in the parish registers until as late as 1837. The majority of linceces recorded in these books were issued to couples residing in the home counties in and around London, but there are also many from other parts of Great Britain, giving couples the right to marry in other counties.

London Church Registers Compendium London Church Registers Compendium Set 1. All of the London and Middlesex church registers which Archive CD Books have scanned in the first phase of their project with The Harleian Society in a special 2 CD set.

The Registers of St Georges Chapel, Mayfair 1740-1754 The Registers of St George's Chapel, Mayfair 1740-1754. Transcripts found in the personal possession of Rev. Alexander Keith.

The chapel was a place that performed marriage ceremonies without the need for obtaining a licence or calling of banns. These were called clandestine marriages and although irregular, they were prefectly valid and binding at the time.

The Rev. Keith was appointed to officiate there and he soon began to advertise in newspapers of the advantages of marrying in his chapel. The Rector of nearby St George, Hanover Square (a proper church), took great exception to this and commenced a suit against Keith in the Doctors Commons. As a result of this Rev. Keith was excommunicated in October 1742 and thrown into the Fleet Prison in 1743.

The clandestine marriages continued, however, performed by his assistants in a nearby private dwelling while Keith lay in prison, where he eventually died in 1758.

One would think that no respectable person would associate themselves with this place but there are records of some eminent people such as 14th February 1752 the Duke of Hamilton to Miss Elizabeth Gunning. Horace Walpole refers to this marriage thus: "The event which has made most noise since my last is the extensive wedding of the youngest of the two Gunning sisters....they were married with the ring of a bed-curtain, at half an hours after twelve at night, at Mayfair Chapel."

Marriages at the chapel were stopped by the passing of Lord Hardwicke's Marriage Act which came into force on 25 March 1754, but referring to the registers you will see that no less than 61 couples were married there on the previous day. This 328 page book contains 316 pages of marriage records.

In this parish it seems to have been the custom to make yearly lists of its inhabitants and the lists for 1733 and 1734 are included in this volume. These lists include information about the head of the family, his occupation, religious faith and the number of other people in his family. Here is an example of five consecutive entries:

Mrs Griffen, Milliner, to Mass, family three
House empty
Ch. yard, Mr Boheme, mercer, to Church, family nine
Mr Drinkwater, stocking presser, to Church, family eight
Mr Call, merchant, to French Church, family five

This shows a row of five dwellings, one empty. One person was Catholic (to Mass), two Anglican (to Church) and the other most likely a European Protestant (to French Church).

Most of the family names in the lists can be found mentioned in the registers.

The Registers of St Michael Cornhill 1546-1754 The Registers of St Michael, Cornhill 1546-1754. Transcripts of the original registers.

There are several interesting entries, besides those of baptisms, marriages and burials. Mention is made in 1563 and 1603 of the beginnings of the plague epidemics. The 1665 Great Plague is not mentioned but the vast increase of burials in the parish gives us an idea of how severe the epidemic was.

In the baptisms there is a break of nine months due to the Great Fire and in 1653 causes of death were added in the burials section, although this practice seems to end after about ten years.

An excellent index makes finding ancestors incredibly easy.

The burials show people with occupations such as plasterer, bricklayer and labourer were interred here, as well as a chap named Lord Horatia (sic) Nelson on January 9th 1806.

There are just four baptisms from 1708 to 1712 then forty more from 1875 until 1897. There are many, many more marriages from 1697 to 1758 and burials from 1760 to 1899.

As with the registers of St Mark Aldermary, the incumbent of the church in 1733, conducted what is, in effect, a partial census of his parishioners, listing the name and occupation of the head of each household along with their religion and the number of people in the family (the names of his family are NOT recorded). Even empty houses are noted and between "Robert Maiyo, barber, to church, family five and John Breadcott, fruiterer, to church, family six" we see "There are in this place ten houses empty, some repaired, others pulled down and rebuilt".

Ancient Funeral Monuments
Ancient Funeral Monuments - 1631. A superb and very ancient book published in 1631 - gravestone & monumental inscriptions in churches in East Anglia, London, the home counties and the south east. Transcribed as they appeared in 1631 !! Hundreds of these gravestones were destroyed during the Civil War of 1642.

The book is organised into dioceses and then the churches within each. The outer columns of each page contain the short references to the people whose gravestones appear. By nature, in this very early period, it was relatively unusual for a family to have a gravestone or monument. Some churches contain just a few, others contain many. This very early and rare book is invaluable to genealogists. There is nothing else like it! Ref 0470suf Price £15.50

Dean Stanley's Historical Memorials of Westminster Abbey, 1911 - ISBN: 1-84630-130-0

Arthur Penrhyn Stanley's Historical Memorials of Westminster Abbey was first published in 1867 and proved so popular that it was reissued repeatedly. The current volume published here, is the eighth edition. The book provides a lively account of the tombs and memorials that are to be found throughout the Abbey, as well as the many 19th century investigations of the tomb contents which the author seems to have particularly enjoyed. Needless to say much of the volume is given over to the large number of royal tombs, with extended discussions of royal coronation ceremonies. The main body of the book contains a thorough catalogue of all the monuments and memorials to be found in the Abbey from its foundation in 1050 to 1881. A more extended treatment is given to groups of memorials with a common theme, e.g. Poets corner (with memorials for Chaucer onwards). The last 200 pages of the book contains a detailed history of the Abbey from earliest times, with much detail about the people connected with its activities. This fascinating book, copiously illustrated with over 540 pages of text was reviewed in the September issue of BBC Who do you think you are? magazine and described as "an amazing insight into the world-famous abbey"
