Upottery Parish Registers


These Upottery parish register transcriptions, covering the years 1559 to 1902, have been made by Roy Parkhouse <roy[at]parkhouse.org[dot]uk> using fiche copies obtained from the Devon Record Office (DRO). Post-1837 marriage registers have not been included because the DRO state they are unable to copy them for sale since they belong to the Registrar General. Permission has been obtained from the Upottery Parochial Church Council (via the DRO) to publish the transcriptions here.
