Whilst every effort has been made to transcribe the registers and other transcripts accurately no responsibility can be accepted for any errors or omissions. The researcher is always advised to check the original records to verify entries in the database. It must be remembered that some of the registers are in poor condition and many have entries that are difficult to read.

Personal Names Database

This is a joint project with the Northamptonshire Record Office. It is a ‘finding aid’ with over 1,366,053 names and contains Baptisms/Christenings, Marriages, Burials, Militia Lists, Poor Law Records, Taxes, Licences, Quarter Sessions and Hospital Records. It does not link family members or parties to a marriage. You will need to refer back to the original documents at the NRO for the full details.

Each entry comprises:
SURNAME, FORENAME, DATE, PLACE AND REFERENCE
In addition to the Surname, searches may be limited to a time period, specified place, area of the county or specific forename. It is helpful if you can narrow down the search criteria when requesting a search.
Also, please advise of any known name variants so that these can be included in the search ie Aires, Heirs, Ayres, Hares.

Printouts are available at:
£1 to members per A4 sheet (please quote membership number)
£1.50 to non-members per A4 sheet (each sheet contains approximately 50 entries)
Please enclose an A5 SAE envelope (UK) or A5 envelope and 3 IRC (overseas).
