Archdeaconry of Norfolk: Archdeacon's Register Bills (also known as Parish Register Transcripts and Archdeacons' Transcripts)

  • ANF 8
  • Fonds
  • 1725-1812

Register Bills, or yearly transcripts of parish registers, usually running Easter to Easter, were returned at Archdeacon's Visitations or at Bishop's Visitation when the latter were held, which was normally every seventh year. They were usually filed by the year but the Archdeacon's Transcripts have been re-sorted by Deanery and by parish within the Deanery. For the Norfolk Archdeaconry these yearly files appear to be represented:

1725-1726, 1726-1727, 1727-1728, 1731-1732, 1732-1733, 1735-1736, 1737-1738, 1738-1739, 1740-1741, 1741-1742, 1742-1743, 1743-1744, 1745-1746, 1747-1748, 1748-1749, 1749-1750, 1750-1751, 1751-1752, 1753-1754, 1754-1755, 1755-1756, 1756-1757, 1757-1758, 1757-1759, 1760-1761, 1761-1762, 1763-1764, 1764-1765, 1765-1766, 1766-1767, 1767-1768, 1768-1769, 1770-1771, 1771-1772, 1772-1773, 1773-1774, 1774-1775, 1775-1776, 1777-1778, 1778-1779, 1779-1780, 1780-1781, 1781-1782, 1782-1783, 1784-1785, 1785-1786, 1786-1787, 1787-1788, 1788-1789, 1789-1790, 1791-1792, 1794-1795, 1795-1796, 1796-1797, 1797-1798, 1798-1799, 1799-1800, 1801-1802, 1803-1804, 1806-1807, 1807-1808, 1808-1809, 1809-1810, 1810-1811, 1811-1812.

For this Archdeaconry the transcripts for the following years were returned to the Bishop and survive with the Bishop's Transcripts:

1691-1692, 1698-1699, 1705-1706, 1708-1709, 1709-1710, 1713-1714, 1715-1716, 1716-1717, 1718-1719, 1720-1721, 1721-1722, 1705-1706, 1708-1709, 1709-1710, 1713-1714, 1715-1716, 1716-1717, 1718-1719, 1720-1721, 1721-1722, 1722-1723, 1723-1724, 1724-1725, 1728-1729, 1729-1730, 1730-1731, 1733-1734, 1734-1735, 1736-1737, 1739-1740, 1744-1745, 1746-1747, 1752-1753, 1759-1760, 1762-1763, 1769-1770, 1776-1777, 1783-1784, 1790-1791, 1792-1793, 1793-1794, 1800-1801, 1802-1803, 1804-1805, 1805-1806, 1812-1813.

It should be emphasised that all transcripts do not survive for the parishes for these years; and that some transcripts were returned to the Bishop in normal years and some to the Archdeacon in Bishop's years. From 1813 onwards all transcripts were returned to the Bishop.

Other documents returnable at visitation, for example lists of church goods, are occasionally copied onto the transcripts.

Letters home from Mormon emigrant, Horace Howlett of Beeston St Andrew, travelling to Salt Lake City

  • MC 3539, 1067x2
  • Fonds
  • Apr-Jun 1854

Letters from Horace whilst as a young man and convert to Mormonism, emigrated with a friend to America, with the aim of settling in Salt Lake City, Utah, or 'the Valley' as he refers to it, although, according to the memoirs of his travelling companion, William Jex, he died en route at 'Sweet Water' somewhere between Kansas City and Utah. These letters were written at various points of his journey, i.e.: near the West Indies, describing the sea voyage across the Atlantic, with a postscript from New Orleans, having travelled up the Mississippi River, mentioning the sight of hundreds of slaves, '...with their little wooden huts seeming to be happy and their masters living in fine houses...' and the orange groves along the river, from Kansas commenting on his prospects and the temptations in America, and from the same place describing his company's provisions and preparations to cross the [Great] Plains by waggon-train to Salt Lake City. Also included are modern transcripts supplied by the donor and printed extracts from William Jex's autobiography.
