The Baptism, Marriage and Burial records were all transcribed from microfiche and photo-copied records by Shannon Abbott - a monumental undertaking by any standards.

Sheila Marshall produced the Census data up to 1871 and Shannon has done the rest.

Permission has been obtained from the Hampshire Record Office to print extracts from the Hampshire County Council book titled The Hampshire Hearth Tax Assessment which was edited by Elizabeth Hughes and Phillippa White. ISSN 0267-9930. The extract is accessible via the Miscellaneous link below in the same manner as other Parish Records. Other information will be added from time to time.

Many of the records from which this information was taken are faded and in some instances unreadable. Where the information has been difficult or impossible to read, a guess has been made, or the entry has been left blank.

If anyone has any information which would add to the completeness of these records, it would be appreciated if they could contact the History Society via the link on the Society's Home Page.
