The Registers of St Michael, Cornhill 1546-1754


Cat No.:   GB8068:

Transcripts of the original registers. There are several interesting entries, besides those of baptisms, marriages and burials. Mention is made in 1563 and 1603 of the beginnings of the plague epidemics. The 1665 Great Plague is not mentioned but the vast increase of burials in the parish gives us an idea of how severe the epidemic was,

In the baptisms there is a break of nine months due to the Great Fire and in 1653 causes of death were added in the burials section, although this practice seemed to end after about 10 years.

An excellent index makes finding ancestors incredibly easy.
