Stourton, Kilmington and Mere Genealogies - Main Page:

As part of research for my PhD in biological anthropology, I am compiling genealogies of all people who were married in the Wiltshire parishes of Stourton, Kilmington and Mere in the period 1775-1924. I am using an extensive array of source material, including parish registers of all local denominations, census records, civil registration such as birth certificates, Poor Law records, published works and input from descendants.

As of 30 Oct 2007 I have completed all marriages in Stourton (Anglican and Catholic), as well as Anglican marriages in Kilmington from 1800 to 1882.

I am likely to commence full-time work on Mere in January 2008. The project should be complete by September 2008. On these webpages you will find extracts from the database of about 13,000 individuals.

They show information about all people in the database who were born prior to 1907. In some cases it is very extensive, in others it is no more than a name and an estimate of a birth date. These pages were last updated on 30 Oct 2007.
