Kirby-le-Soken St. Michael

The church at Kirby-le-Soken

Notes

  • There are gaps in the early register: no baptisms 1718-24, no burials 1718-24 & 1730-50, no marriages 1718-48.
  • Walton’s church collapsed into the sea, and so baptisms, burials and marriages took place at Kirby-le-Soken. Baptisms and burials 1778-1798, and marriages 1799-1804 are in Kirby’s register.
