Bolton Abbey, Yorkshire

Bishops' Transcripts

'Willm Carr Clerke Minister theire
James Holm and Christopher Petty
Churchwardens theire' [1632]


The parish registers for Bolton Abbey begin in 1689. It is known that some Bishops' Transcripts exist for earlier years. I have recently been working on microfilms of these BTs at my local LDS Family History Centre, and have discovered several 'missing' years that are not recorded in any published transcript or on the IGI.

The years are - 1632, 1633, 1635, 1637, 1662 and 1692.

I have transcribed the entries exactly as they are written. It is advisable to check all possible variations of an ancestor's surname.

Thank you to the LDS Church Family History Centre at Pontefract for allowing me the loan of the microfilm (ref. 919157 item 2). The original documents are held at the Borthwick Institute of Historical Research, York.
