Moor Crichel

Marriages at Moor Crichel 1731-1839

Transcribed from the Bishops Transcripts held at the Wiltshire & Swindon History Centre, Chippenham on 2 April 2011 by Jon Baker

The "original" Bishops Trancripts consist of an unbound set of parchment fragments kept in a card wallet in the W&SHC. Some of these fragments are very small, and in some cases are difficult to read. There are many gaps in the years covered in the BTs. In some cases there are clear notes stating that there were no marriages recorded in certain years - in these cases this is indicated below by the phrase "No marriages took place" (the marriage records are usually but not always on the same fragments as baptisms and burials). Other years simpy have no marriage records in the bundle of documents, so it is not clear whether there were marriages or not. For these years "No records in BTs" the researcher should consult the Parish Registers if possible.

I have checked this transcription against the LDS Church transcription which is part of the online IGI Database (Batch Number M160321). There are significant differences between the IGI and this transcript, most notably the below list contains a lot of additional information (such as witesses, home parish, marital status and so on). There are also many mistakes in the IGI version (there are probably some mistakes in my transcript as well) but in general the number of records that I have transcribed matches almost exactly with the IGI which would suggest that no or few records have been missed in this transcript or lost since the LDS did the original filming many years ago. I also discovered several entries in the BTs that do not exist on the IGI (primarily the records for 1839, but there are a few others as well).
