"Middlesex" parish records
« on: Tuesday 09 January 18 20:27 GMT (UK) »
Good evening,  does anybody know where to find, if they exist still, birth records prior to 1837, I am trying to find any entry for my 5 x great grandfather from 1831 and I understand some parishes may hold old records.  I am trying to find records under what was then 'Middlesex' and or Westminster.  Might also be under 'St John' but all are covered under Middlesex.  Any suggestions are appreciated.

Kind Regards

Hi

My suggestion?
How about telling us exactly who/when you are looking for?

ALL details of what you know will almost certainly be helpful.

Cheers!

Thanks Ray,

William Clancy

St John, Middlesex, England

Father:  James

Not sure if there are any brothers or sisters.

1841 he was living in Great Porter Street - St Martins in the field.

Got the full ref for 1841?

Great Porter or Great Portland?

I think it is a typo on Ancestry, should read Great Peter Street.

From memory ancestry also recorded the name as Chancy. I will scan a image shortly.

There's an Ellen Clancy, Widow in 1851 at Strutton Place, which assuming it's near the current Strutton Ground adjoins Great Peter Street

She's 50 from Ireland, a widow and keeps a stall
Also there is sister Ann Sheehan, also a widow  from Ireland and keeps a stall, 35
and nephew Jerry Bryan b St Giles, Middx, 7

1479/496/7/26


St John's Westminster should be on FindMyPast
The Bishops Transcripts should be on Ancestry

However, didn't spot anything obvious

Likely to be Catholic?
