Baptism, Marriage & Burial Transcriptions

Transcribing is continuing for all Harford Parish information available for baptisms, marriages and burials, from records obtained from the Devon County Council.  Lookups for baptisms, marriages and burials (with some gaps) can be made from copies of the church registers:

  • Baptisms from 1724 to 1993

  • Marriages from 1755 to 1837

  • Burials from 1813 to 1986

Census Transcriptions

We have completed transcribing the 1841, 1851, 1861, 1871, 1881, 1891 1901 and 1911 Censuses for Harford Parish. These results are posted on the GENUKI/Harford pages where they may be reviewed personally by researchers. Some transcriptions have also been completed for the adjacent parishes of Cornwood, Bickleigh and Shaugh Prior Parishes. See relevant GENUKI pages for these parishes for links to the census summaries.

1841 Tithe Apportionments

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.”

We can look up information on the Tithe Apportionments list and maps although they have not yet been fully transcribed or scanned to this web site.
