Speculum Gregis 1843
'An Account of all the Inhabitants of the Parish of Croydon
in the County of Cambridgeshire commencing from 1 January 1843'
by Reverend Francis Fulford 1803-1868 (Rector at Croydon 1841-1845).
Additional notes by Reverend R S B Sandilands (Rector 1845-1864).

Banns 1840-1850
The marriage banns for Croydon-cum-Clopton parish have been provided as background information to accompany the "Speculum Gregis" listings. Unless otherwise stated, the banns were meant to have been 'read' three times in the 'home' churches of both the bride and groom.
Unfortunately, no banns were recorded for Croydon between 1805 and 1870. It would appear the parish records have been lost. I will try and recreate at least some of the Croydon records from the banns and marriage registers of nearby parishes (Arrington, Wendy, Wimpole, Orwell and Whaddon). Page under developement.
(See also: Baptisms, Marriages and Burials. All dates 1840-1850 inclusive.)

My thanks and acknowledgments to the Parochial Church Council for Croydon-cum-Clopton and All Saints Parish Church for allowing the online publication of the Church Registers. This page is based on their transcription by T.P.R.Layng.
