In his latest handbook on the records of the major Christian religions, Stuart Raymond focuses on the Church of England. He identifies the available sources, comments on their strengths and weaknesses and explains how to make the best use of them. The history of the Church of England is covered, from the Reformation in the mid-sixteenth century until the present day. Anyone who has a family connection with the Church of England or a special interest in the local history of the church will find his book to be a mine of practical information and an essential aid for their research. A sequence of short, accessible chapters gives an insight into the relevant records and demonstrates how much fascinating genealogical information can be gleaned from them. After providing a brief history of the Church of England, and a description of its organization, Stuart Raymond explores the wide range of records that researchers can consult. Among them are parish registers, bishops transcripts, marriage licences, churchwardens accounts, vestry minutes, church magazines, tithe records and the records of the ecclesiastical courts and Anglican charities and missions. A wealth of research material is available and this book is the perfect introduction to it.

Whether you are undertaking a parish or family history, you'll find this easy-to-read guide by an expert UK genealogist and author a real aid in your research.

Family Tree, December 2017

To describe this book as wide-ranging would be an understatement. It covers a wealth of subjects embracing both laity and clergy. As there can be few, if any, family historians who don't have ancestors that were members of the Church of England, arguably this is a work for everyone... This book's strength is in the background and the understanding that is provides and it must be recommended for that alone.
