FindMyPast has added more Surrey records to their Thames & Medway Collection. This time round it is the turn of St Mary’s Rotherhithe and St Paul’s Rotherhithe, the records are transcripts of baptisms 1850 – 1900 & marriages 1870 – 1885. The mother church for Rotherhithe is St Mary which has parish registers dating from 1555, St Paul’s was built as a Chapel of Ease in 1850. The baptisms entries state that the ceremonies took place at St Mary’s, but we are told that they actually took place at St Paul’s.
Sadly St Paul’s was demolished in 1955, but St Mary’s still remains. The church has a website with information on the history of parish. A link to the website is given below.
These transcripts have been provided to FindMyPast by Rob Cottrell.
