Gloucestershire Towns and Parishes

This Town and Parish List aims to cover all the parishes for which original source material is available at the Gloucestershire Record Office (GRO). The list may therefore include references to some parishes which are now in Herefordshire, Warwickshire, Wiltshire &c. Parish groupings, and spellings have been adopted as available in the GRO Handlist, but please be aware when consulting other sources that there may be considerable variation to what appears here, both in presentation and in spelling. Specifically, some parishes may have been known by quite different names in the past - for example, the modern day village known as Guiting Power can in some records be found as "Lower Guiting".

Some parishes may be noted as being "ex. par." = extra-parochial.

" An extra-parochial area was land uninhabited in Anglo-Saxon times and outside the jurisdiction of any civil or ecclesiastical parish. No poor or church rates were paid, though tithes in theory went to the Crown. A resident could choose the nearest convenient parish for baptisms, etc."
