Early records were written in Latin, and entries often became faded or jumbled up. Transcribing these records is not a job for the fainthearted, so this huge index collated by HGS researchers is an invaluable asset to anyone tracing their Hampshire ancestors.

This excellent resource is the complete index to parish register burial entries in mainland Hampshire (excludes the Isle of Wight), and covers the period from 1400 to 1841.

It is fully searchable and an essential tool for those researching their Hampshire ancestry – almost 450 years of records!

Background Historical Information

In 1538 Thomas Cromwell ordered that all parishes should keep a register of baptisms, marriages and burials. In 1597 an order signed by Elizabeth I required that these parish records had to be on parchment, and that previous entries going back to 1558 (the start of her reign) had to be copied into these registers. The content of early registers is often different, as it depended upon what the individual vicar wanted to record, and they were mostly written in Latin.
