Parish registers of Charlton by Dover, Kent


The registers were transcribed by Dorothy Holden and are included on this site with her permission.

Note that records date from the 1500's.
The baptisms up to 1812 and the marriages up to 1755 are taken from a transcript of the original parish registers which are also on film but very badly damaged in sections. The original registers were in such a bad state that in 1893 the Rector had a transcription done. There is a note that the transcription was completed on 12th June 1893 and signed as authentic copies by the Rector and William Fry PARKS, Churchwarden on that date. As usual I am happy to recheck for anyone with a query.

Due to the way the calendar year differed from our Jan to Dec year some entries are in the year previous. Prior to 1752 the new year began on 25th March.


Baptisms 1701-1844
Marriages 1701-1838
Burials 1700-1823
