Sources of Records before 1st July 1837

Before 1st July 1837, the principal means of recording births (or baptisms), marriages and deaths (or burials) were parish registers kept by clergymen of the Church of England. The best way to trace them is to get in touch with the County Archivist, Cornwall Record Office, Old County Hall, Truro. The County Archivist also holds a number of other records useful in researching family history, including Methodist registers of baptisms, marriages and burials.

Cornwall Family History Society also has a wide range of indexes, census records and other material as well as a comprehensive store of local and background information.

All local authorities hold records for their administrative area. if you require a certificate for a birth, death or marriage which occurred outside Cornwall, you will need to contact the register office for that area, as we only hold records for Cornwall.

Hi Steve,

I see you are researching the name Barlase, but down here in Cornwall the name Borlase is much more common. I just wonder if the name has been misspelt or mistranscribed somewhere along the line and it may be worth you looking at Borlase instead?
