  • Bernard Freeman of Manitoba, Canada worked on the majority baptisms for Matlock St Giles' that are presented on this website during 20001/2*, with additional years added in 2005. There have been further additions and corrections by the web mistress since then.

  • In 2018 a further 406 baptisms have been added to fill most of the gap between 1660 and 1672 and this work is still ongoing. Where the Rector's and Churchwardens' names appear at the bottom of each page in this section of the parish register has also been noted.

  • Whilst every effort has been made to be as accurate as possible, it is recognised that individual entries may be open to different interpretation. Please get in touch if your research does not agree with an entry published here as we would like to know.

*Initially done for John Palmer's Wirksworth website, the information has subsequently been added to and is published here with Bernie's kind permission. Ann Andrews contributed amendments and additions to the original transcripts when they were first done, with further additions in 2010, 2011, 2015, 2016 and 2017 which have all been incorporated into the information on these pages.
Transcripts from 2018 onwards, ie. for the years 1660-1672, are © Ann Andrews.
All information is held by Ann in a database of her own design but is presented here as close to Bernie's original work as possible.
