Dr Campbell's Index

Dr Campbell started a hugh project and transcribed the baptism and marriage dates for a vast number of parishes in the county of Somerset. He subdivided these into a surname index written on to card files which are held at the Somerset Archives and Records Service.

I have a photocopy of a few of these surname indexes and have so far typed up the information for the following surnames: BURGE, MALE, OATEN.

FOURACRE, RICHARDS, and HAWKINS still to type up.

Settlement & Bastardy Orders

The Somerset Archives and Records Service have a number of card files which are indexed by surname. They list lots of Settlement, Removal and Bastardy Orders. I've only typed in the index for the surnames EDMONDS, MALE and PRIDDLE.
