Kent, England: Parish and Probate Records

This database is a collection of historical parish and probate registers from the county of Kent in the Country of England. The 123,100 records in this collection can range in date from the early 1500s to the mid- to late-1800s.

Some non-parish records may be included from as early as the twelfth century. Parish records–primarily baptisms, marriages, and burials–provide the best source of vital record information in the centuries before civil registration. The records include baptisms/christenings, burials, marriages, tombstone inscriptions, obituaries, tax lists, wills, and other miscellaneous types of records. Also included are some records from non-conformist churches. All of the data was converted as it was originally presented in various published registers and books. For this reason, you will find interesting phonetic spellings and large descriptive tables of contents.
