From the Parish Registers
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.
The transcription by T P R Layng concludes on 4 October 1863. The transcription following this date is by Julia Thorogood with contributions by John Steadman. 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, baptism 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.
Unless otherwise stated, the dates shown record the date of the baptism/christening service at Wimpole Parish Church, not the date of birth of the child. In cases of significant illness or impending death, some Baptisms/Christenings would have been performed by the Rector at the child's home.
It was the convention for the baptism/christening service to be held within a week or so of birth. However, there was no law to enforce baptisms within any set time (beyond incurring the not insignificant displeasure of the local Rector!) and many examples in the Registers show baptisms being carried out months or even years after birth. Some children were never baptised, especially those from Nonconformist families.
The original spelling of names in the Registers (as transcribed) has been retained.
In England and Wales, up to 1751, the New Year began on the 25th March (Lady Day).
Information, notes, observations, and comments additional to the original text are generally shown within [square brackets] and in italics.
