St Dunstan, Stepney records now online

St Dunstan Stepney baptisms

For the last few days Ancestry has been saying that they will be putting up a new set of records on the 24 October so I expected that FindMyPast would do the same ….. and I was right!!

St Dunstan, Stepney baptisms has been added to the Dockland’s Collection at FindMyPast. The additions 20,000+ records for the period 1697 – 1712. St Dunstan’s must have been a busy parish to have generated that number of baptisms over a 15 year period.

The transcripts have been provided by the team at Dockland Ancestors.

FindMyPast Middlesex Collection – new additions

Philip Richard Morris - The Christening Party Whoo Hoooo !!!!!

 FindMyPast has added 95,000+ new baptism transcriptions and 79,000+ burial transcriptions to their Middlesex Collection. If you have ancestors who lived in the London/Middlesex area, and most of us have, you will know how easy it is to lose them in the great metropolis. The Collections offered by FindMyPast and Ancestry are such a great help.

There is a list of the parishes covered on the website, but sadly not the time period covered this is an admission that I think FindMyPast needs to address. The transcripts have been prepared by Cliff Webb an expert on London/Middlesex family history.

More Surrey records on FindMyPast

St Marys Rotherhithe Church

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.
