hello
several of my ancestors were apparently christened at St Martin in the Fields, Middlesex according to the IGI.

Are these parish register records ONLINE that i can search? or should I head off to my nearest LDS church and order them??

thank you for any help and advice
vanessa :-)

They are probably available on Ancestry. If you ask for lookups on the Find Ancestors board someone will be able to give you the data.

The images available on Ancestry for marriage go from 1800-1834 with some years missing and the baptisms from 1813-1835 and 1848-1856.

hi everyone
thanks so much for all your information and your kindness in sourcing registers for me.

may I beg one more look-up???

John Christian Manley married Louisa.

John was christened in 1779 so may have married prior to the 1800's and thus won't be on the ancestry records. the first child baptised (that I can find ) was bap in 1813 (but then that's when the records go from on ancestry so he may have had numerous other children prior to this).
.
his children were baptised in St Martin in the Fields, so I have made a sweeping assumption(Yeah, I know.....) that he may have been married there.
he married Sarah Thompson in 1822 (at St Giles), and was a widow then.

thank you again everyone
vanessa

As it isn't on Ancestry, the only other place to look on line is the IGI, which you can access yourself..........

Are you now saying that you have an Ancestry sub?
