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.
The listings that follow are based on the provided 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, 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 here record the date of the burial at Wimpole Parish Church, not the date of death. For practical reasons (in those unrefrigerated times), local burials were usually carried out within a few days of death.
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 Wimpole Registers' text are usually shown within [square brackets] and in italics.

[See also entry for 24 January 1876 below]
    [** - 18 December 1875. An inquest was held before C.W. Palmer, Esq., deputy county coroner, at the Queen Victoria PH, Orwell [now Wimpole], on Monday, touching the death of Samuel Spackman and David Clark, two boys, who lost their lives by drowning in the gault pits situated in Mr Dudley's brick fields at New Wimpole, on Saturday morning last. It appeared from the evidence that the deceased were sliding on the ice on the pit named when the ice broke and they went into the water. Both struggled to get out. Spackman got on the top of the ice, and then Clark caught hold of him and pulled him down. They struggled for some time, but were unable to save themselves, and sank before assistance arrived. Harry Gadd, a boy, who was playing at the pit at the time of the accident, gave an alarm, and several men were soon on the spot. When the bodies were recovered, life was quite extinct. William Whitby, labourer, who was working on Saturday at the brick fields in question, warned the boys off the ice, and they left, but they appeared to have returned again when Whitby was absent. Verdict, "Accidental death".]
