Chardstock Historical Record Group have now completed their 2017 update which is now posted on the website. It extends to 450 pages of additional information, as listed below:
Manor Court Roll 1670 to 1702
A major project caused by the original being in Court Latin which took longer to process than expected.
Chardstock, St. Andrew’s School Register 1867 to 1919
Although an internal school document not completed to the standard of other official documents, this register lists about 1200 pupils who attended the school. It provides valuable information not readily available elsewhere, such as dates of birth, the name by which the child was generally known, the standard of education attained and where pupils went after leaving school.
For information on pupils who started school after 1919 please contact us on e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
All Saints School Register 1872 to 1919
Similar in format and content to the St. Andrew’s School register – see above.
Extended from 148 to 249 pages of information with a sizeable proportion of the new material covering the period 1860 to 1875. A useful source of information on newspaper reports relating to criminal courts.
Additional Information on births/baptisms, marriages and deaths/burials for Chardstock, All Saints and Wambrook.
Expanded by a further 22 pages of information. Can be found on the side bar under Parish Registers/BMDs.
CHRG are always pleased to receive comments or suggestions about the website and have a small Research Team who may be able to help. Please contact us by e-mail email@example.com.
