Explore over 320,000 parish records from over a century before civil registration. The records include parishes in the Thames and Medway area. Discover your ancestor’s baptism date and parents’ names.

The transcripts are created by the information documented in the original sources. The detail in each source can vary, but most will include:

  • Name
  • Birth date
  • Baptism date
  • Place
  • County
  • Mother’s name
  • Father’s name
  • Notes – may include additional information
  • Source – the parish records

Parish records are a fabulous resource for those family historians who have hit the pre-registration, 1837, wall. By discovering parish records, you can extend you family tree back another generation or two.

These transcripts were created by local specialist Rob Cottrell.

We have published approximately 320,185 baptism records for Thames-side and Medway parishes. These records cover the period 1721 to 1970 and are transcriptions, not indexes. The areas these records cover include, among others, Brentford, Deptford, Ealing, Greenwich and Rotherhithe.
