Extracts from Nunney Parish Registers

Adjacent parishes: Frome St John, Marston Bigot, Witham Friary, Cloford, Downhead, Whatley

Extracts from microfiches of Parish Registers contributed by Peter Hillier, Valma Kent, Ruth Kim, Dale Lidbury and David Smart.

Baptisms (1685-1750), Marriages (1556-89, 1898-1904) including Banns (1863-92), Burials (1718-49) and Memorial Inscriptions. The Registers date from 1653, but are very difficult to read between 1690 and 1712. See also Peter Hillier’s full transcripts of Marriages, 1589-1755, 1755-1812, 1813-37 and 1837-98.

Year of entry as written before 1752, not double-dated: e.g. 12 Jan 1695 = 12 Jan 1695/6
