St Andrew's Parish Church, Wimpole
A local history and genealogy page for the Parish of Wimpole.

St Andrew's Parish Church, Wimpole
St Andrew's Parish Church.
A living church for the Parish of Wimpole, located within the National Trust's Wimpole Hall Estate.
The Church is managed and maintained by the Parochial Church Council.

My thanks and acknowledgments to the Parochial Church Council for Wimpole and St Andrew's Parish Church for allowing the online publication of the Church Registers.
Listings prior to 1864 are based on the Church Registers for the Parish of Wimpole, as transcribed and collated by T P R Layng in March 1983. Originally typed by C L and A E Hatton. Additional research for this website is by Steve Odell.
In medieval times there were no parish registers. Through the efforts of Thomas Cromwell in 1538 a mandate was issued by Henry VIII for churches to maintain parish records. This ordered that every parson, vicar or curate was to enter in a book every wedding, christening and burial in his parish. In 1558 Queen Elizabeth re-confirmed her father's mandate into law and many church records date from that year. Wimpole's own church records for baptisms, weddings and burials began in 1560.
In 1754, the Lord Hardwicke's Act (and yes, that's our Lord Chancellor Hardwicke [1690-1764], interred within his memorial in Wimpole's Chicheley Chapel) required separate registers for banns and marriages. Banns being an announcement made in a parish church of an intention to marry. The act was passed to prevent clandestine and under-age marriages. To make the Act more effective, a special printed form was devised which called for the signatures of the officiating minister, the two witnesses and those of the bride and groom. Wimpole's church records for banns and marriages in the new format began in 1754.
Banns were to be read in the parish church in both parishes where the bride and groom each lived plus the church where the wedding would take place if different. The banns needed to be read for three consecutive Sundays ending a week before the wedding day.
In England, under the provisions of Lord Hardwicke's Act of 1753, from 1754 onwards a marriage would only be legally valid if the banns had been properly read.
The date shown in the listings below is the last (third) date of reading the banns, not the date of the eventual wedding. The original spelling of names (as transcribed) has been retained.
