Index of Isle of Thanet Baptisms 1780-1840

This index is still in progress but will eventually cover the parishes of St.Nicholas at Wade, Monkton, Minster, St.Lawrence Thanet, St.George Ramsgate, St.Peter Thanet, St.John Thanet and Birchington.

The increasingly populous parishes of St.John, or Margate, St.George Ramsgate and St.Lawrence (Ramsgate) saw numerous baptisms each year and it has been thought worth making a union index covering a period of 60 years since this should cover most people giving one of these parishes or 'Thanet' as their birthplace in a census and also may cover two generations of some families.

The period 1780-1812 is complete and ready for searches, and the period 1813-1840 is being indexed.

How to order:

Search Fee: £5 per specific baptism. A quotation will be given for details of any siblings. It may be possible to provide photocopies of any relevant entries, at an extra charge which will be advised when replying. Replies normally sent same day by e-mail, but can be mailed if preferred.
