Parish records are vital to researching your family history since censuses and official birth, marriage, and death records only go back to 1837, when civil registration was instated. However, the requirement for parish priests to maintain a weekly register of baptisms, marriages, and deaths began in 1538 following King Henry VIII's split from the Roman Catholic Church. A fine was put in place for failure to comply, and from 1733, entries had to be written in English instead of Latin.
