Quainton Parish Register CD of B,M and D 1599-1900.

Our contact in Quainton, Stan Cook, has kindly forwarded the following extract from his Parish Magazine.

Revd. Martin Partridge’s Legacy by June Hanson

Martin and Tessa have now left us for what we all hope will be a long and happy retirement, but before he left, he gave us, the Parish, a rather special legacy.

Not many are aware that the Rev: Cautley during his time as Vicar here in 1908. He undertook the task of taking the names and details off the three church registers that recorded all Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, starting from 1599 and up to 1900 and copied them into ledgers in alphabetical order. They are beautifully written up and these ledgers are now on permanent loan in the Buckinghamshire County Archives at Aylesbury for safekeeping.

But before placing them there, Martin has for some time prior to leaving, been scanning each page (776 in all) and putting them on disc. That has now been accomplished and the discs are available to interested parties. They will be invaluable to anyone researching his or her family tree or village history. It was a long, tedious job for both Reverends but such a worthwhile one and one which will be invaluable to future researchers.

So our most grateful thanks go to Martin for completing such a time-consuming and mammoth task

When Martin’s successor has taken up residence here in Quainton, we will hand the discs over to him or her, but in the meantime, should you wish to have one, contact either of the churchwardens, June Hanson or Philip Goddard, on +44(0)1296 655249 and +44(0)1296 651801 respectively.

A charge of UK £15 per disc will be asked which willcontribute to church funds.

Society Overseas Members should ask about the additional cost of packing and postage.
