REIGHTON: Reighton Parish Records, 1757-1800

Reighton Parish Records, 1757-1800

Parish Records for St. Peter's Church, Reighton 1757-1800.

Editor's note
The Registers of the Marriages in the Parish of Reighton from the year 1754 to 1803, both included, were entered and witnessed in the Register Book according to the form appointed by Act of Parliament, but being written on paper and in a state of decay, were extracted from if in the year 1803 as follows by me, Henry Eustatius Strickland, churchwarden of the Parish of Reighton.

(This appears in the register in 1803. In places the year of marriage is ambiguous as Henry Strickland began the year on January 1 whereas the registers at this time began on Lady Day, March 25. Where possible I have looked for the date of Baptism of the first child and assigned the Marriage to the year which seems most likely in this context. Where there are no children recorded of a match (usually where one of the parents came from outside the village) I have allocated it to the year given by HS. However, the year of any Marriage between 1754 and 1800 should be treated with some caution if it took place between January 1 and March 25. The date given by HS is in brackets at the end of the entry. )
