    The parish registers held at Portsmouth History Centre pertain to Church of England parishes in the deaneries of Portsmouth, Gosport, Fareham, and Havant. The records span from the 16th century to present day; however, due to privacy concerns, there is a 100-year cut-off on publishing parish records.
