Baptism, Marriage & Burial Transcriptions
Transcribing is continuing for all Cornwood Parish information available for baptisms, marriages and burials, from records obtained from the Devon County Council and other sources. To date we have transcribed records for:
• Baptisms from 1691 to 1995
• Marriages from 1685 to 1932
• Banns from 1754 to 1840
• Burials from 1627 to 2001
We have completed transcribing the 1841, 1851, 1861, 1871, 1881, 1891, 1901 and 1911 Censuses for Cornwood Parish. These results are posted on the GENUKI/Cornwood pages where they may be reviewed personally by researchers. Some transcriptions have also been completed for the adjacent parishes of Harford, Plympton St Mary and Plympton St Maurice Parishes. See relevant GENUKI pages for these parishes for links to the census summaries
From the National Archives description: “The original tithe apportionments were created under the Tithe Commutation Act 1836. Tithe districts were apportioned and mapped, 10,871 in England and 959 in Wales. The apportionments set out the names of the holders and occupiers of land in each tithe district (usually a parish or township) the acreage and use of each parcel of land, the amount of rentcharge payable and the names of the tithe owners. Until 1936, subsequent altered apportionments were laced up with the original apportionments.”
