Link: Website for helping find a vicar
« on: Thursday 11 June 15 15:37 BST (UK) »
Very handy website for finding vicars, priests, curates, rectors etc.

This website will tell you what dates the vicar was at a certain church etc. This may come in handy if you are trying to work out who was where, and when etc.

Perhaps you have a baptism, with no date, but the vicars name. If you can find him in the database, you will have a better idea of when the baptism took place, and the church it was done in.

Have fun!

Just be aware that it is only Church of England clergy, and covers 1540-1835.
