This page allows simple searches against our genealogical database, best used if you have a specific person you are trying to find by name. Basic options are included to narrow results by Year, Parish, Abode, and Occupation. As of December 2014, wildcard searching is now supported on these searches. Please use "_" to match single characters, and "*" to match multiple characters. For example, searching "Jo_n" in the First Name field will return results for "John" and "Joan," but not "Jonathan," whereas "Jo*n" will return not only "John" and "Joan" but also "Jonathan" and any other name which begins with "J" and ends with "n," regardless of length.
