Title: Calne BMD Transcripts
Post by: brianz on Wednesday 07 September 16 16:08 BST (UK)
Do anyone know where I can get a copy of the transcripts of Calne Baptism records, either to view or preferably to purchase on CD? It is the very early ones that I am after. Ancestry and FindMyPast have some but the early ones  seem to be missing

Thanks

Can you tell us what years you particularly wish to view?  It would then help in hopefully directing you to the right place.

According to Wiltshire-OPC.org.uk, there are no transcripts available!

Parish Registers are Wiltshire & Swindon History Centre.

I also checked Wiltshire FHS - they haven't done Calne!

Thanks for the reply.

Girl Guide the dates I am looking for are 1760 back to as early as possible

Ancestry appear to have baptisms for Calne.  How far back they go I'm not sure.

A lot of names appear with no year but when you click on a name they are before 1760.

No image available, transcription - if you want to call it that - will give father's name and birth date.  Not sure if birth date is when the child was born or date stated is when child was baptised.

If you have a sub to Ancestry you can have a look for yourself.

brianz,

I know its baptisms your after, but just to fill in, in case you need to know, Calne Marriages from 1538 to 1837 are on CDM1 available from the WiltsFHS.
