THORNBER DATA ARCHIVE

Burials from 1600 to 1849 at St. Helen's, Waddington
formerly Yorkshire, now Lancashire, ENGLAND

Lancashire Rose Yorkshire Rose

These records have been abstracted from the Yorkshire Parish Register Society Transcript to 1812 which was published in 1930. Thereafter records are from the film of  the bishops' transcripts at Lancashire County Record Office.

All terms in Latin have been converted to English.  Some names are shown in Latin.  Genitive forms such as Richardi meaning "of Richardus" have been changed to the nominative case.   It is remarkable that these records continue without apparent break right through the Civil War period. However, there are no records between 1601 and 1616. There is no indication in the YPRS transcript that the data was cross-checked with the Bishops' transcripts. This may reveal additional records during the period missing in the register. For the Lancashire Parish Register Society, collation with the bishop's transcripts has been a requirement for many years.

Calendar Changes

Note that the calendar formerly used to go from 25th March (Lady Day) to 24th March. Hence dates in January, February and March 1st to 24th are LATER than dates from 25 March to 31 December. The Gregorian Calendar was introduced by Pope Gregory XIII in October 1582 to rectify inaccuracies in the former Julian Calendar. However, it was not accepted in England until 1751.

In England, the year 1751 started on 25 March and ran only until 31 December. 1752 then started on 1 January and ran until 31 December as it does now. To bring the calendar back in sequence with astronomical events such as the equinox and soltice, 11 days had to be removed so 2nd September 1752 was followed by 14 September. This led to riots by people who thought they had been deprived of 11 days of life.

On the Julian Calendar, it was possible for someone to be born on 26 March 1630 and die on 26 February 1630, eleven months later! The parish clerk continued to record burials as if the Julian Calendar was still in force until 1792. Below I have entered dates as they would have been for the Julian Calendar up to 1751 and thereafter on the Gregorian Calendar to provide consistency with other documents.
