Suffolk Baptisms and Marriages

Find My Past have recently included in their records Suffolk Baptism Index 1538-1911, and Suffolk Marriage Index.

Suffolk Baptism Index 1538-1911
The Suffolk Baptism Index was created by the Suffolk Family History Society. The index includes 351 parishes and 747,204 records across the East Anglian county. We found:

PASKs    247
PASKEs  248
PARSKs     2
Whilst we have a lot of the baptisms, kindly provided by the Suffolk researchers, we have compiled a spreadsheet. We are checking the entries, and adding any new ones to the database. 

During the past week, we have added information on baptisms. In particular PASK-related families in Lawshall, and Cockfield, Suffolk. 

Charlotte Pask married Daniel Lambert and they had eleven children. They in turn had several children, and subsequently this resulted in an additional 47 new narratives. 

Suffolk Marriage Index
The transcription consists of tens of thousands of entries, between 1536 and 1902, and covering over 433 out of approximately 500 parishes of the County of Suffolk. We found:
PASKs      49
PASKEs    48
PARSKs     3
Most of these marriages are already included in our database. However, similarly, we have created a spreadsheet and are checking the entries, and adding any new ones to the database. 

The website is currently being updated with this information today. There are now a total of 11,278 detailed narratives available on the website and 18,336 (48 new) people in our database.
