Known Issues

Question: Although the collection framework organizes Norfolk County records first by Archdeaconry and then by Year, some Year collections include records for several different years. How can I find the correct set of records?
Answer: Original parish records should be searched when available.
The original record pages as they are shown in this collection, may be out of sequence. The following are some examples:

  • In the Archdeaconry of Norfolk record collection for Year 1856, Parish Range T-Y; many records between Images 70 and 201 are for years 1853, 1854, 1855, or 1857.
  • Archdeaconry of Norfolk Thurlton Parish records with dates ranging from 1838-1842 are included in the Year 1842 collection; and those records are missing from Thurlton records in the collections for Years 1838, 1839, 1840, and 1841.
  • In the Archdeaconry of Norfolk Year 1842 collection, Thurlton Parish records that appear in Images 32, 33, and 34 include Register pages 41, 44, 45, 42, 43, and 22 - in that order.

When searching this Bishop’s Transcripts collection, if a record cannot be found in the Year and record sequence expected, the search should be broadened as indicated above.
