The Registers of St Mary, Aldermary, London, 1558-1754


Cat No.:   GB8065:

Transcripts of the original registers. Marriages, baptisms and burials from 1558 until 1754.

In this parish it appears to have been the custom to make yearly lists of its inhabitants and two of those lists, for 1733 and 1734, are included in this volume. These lists include information about the head of the family, his occupation, religious faith and the number of other people in his family. Here is an example of five consecutive entries:

Mrs Griffen. Milliner, to Mass. Family three.

House empty.

Ch. yard. Mr Boheme, mercer, to Church, family nine.

Mr Drinkwater, stocking presser, to Church, family eight.

Mr Call, Mercht. To French Church, family five.

This shows a row of five dwellings, one empty. One person was a Catholic (to Mass), two Anglican (to Church) and the other most likely a Hugenot (to French Church).

Most of the family names in the lists can be found mentioned in the registers
