Bishop's Transcripts 1640 - 1641
NB: These records are from the Canterbury Cathedral Bishop's Transcripts
seized in 1641 when the Archbishop William Laud was arrested by the "Long Parliament".
[Click] for wikipedia information about his arrest, trial and execution.
The records for the year 1640 are now archived in the Parliamentary Archives at
the Palace of Westminster, London. [Click] [Note: These are external links]
The original church records for this parish at this time are missing.
This is the only record of these BMDs for 1640-1641, (and they use the Julian Calendar
with 25 March being the start of each new year.)
The Bishops Transcripts for this parish in other years, will still be held at Canterbury Cathedral Archives.
