Re­mem­ber to check for non­con­formist an­ces­tors ap­pear­ing un­ex­pect­edly in Angli­can parish reg­is­ters. Some min­is­ters recorded the births, deaths and burial lo­ca­tions of lo­cal res­i­dents de­spite them not at­tend­ing their churches. Quak­ers – who were ex­empt from Hard­wicke’s Mar­riage Act – may be men­tioned, as well as Ro­man Catholics. Sim­i­larly, a burial plot in an Angli­can church­yard need not sig­nify an al­le­giance to that es­tab­lish­ment.
