has been expressed in transcribing other Middlesex parishes and this page
is prepared to host them or point to them for anyone who wishes to submit
them. Press the following button to access the index on Sandy's web
site. Read below and see the map to understand the coverage and background.
The parishes covered by the records in Sandy's index consist of about two thirds of those contained in the area left remaining in the County of Middlesex after the creation of the County of London in 1889; although the marriages indexed go back well before that (to the 16th century). The map below shows the coverage area, with the parishes covered named in green.
A number of other parishes within the area are mentioned in the Notes & Comments to some entries (for example "of Old Brentford").
It is not
known if the coverage for each parish is either complete or accurate. Users
are advised to consult the original parish registers for ultimate confirmation.
Middlesex parish registers are mostly held by the London
Metropolitan Archives. There are also some at the Westminster Archives,
Poplar Library, and Guildhall Library, etc. For further information, please
