Guide to Regent's Park, Middlesex ancestry, family history, and genealogy: Parish registers, transcripts, census records, birth records, marriage records, and death records.

Parish History[edit | edit source]

Regents Park, eccl. dist., St Pancras par., Middlesex, in NW. of London, pop. 10,378; the park is a circular enclosure of 450 ac. It contains the Baptist College.[1]

Additional information:

St Mark regent Park was created a church [but] was not consecrated until 1853. [It lay within the civil parish boundaries of St Pancras.] This area, now in the Borough of Camden, is known to have been inhabited for 4000 years. 2000 years before Christ the ancient Britons practised Druidism here, Primrose Hill being one of the sacred places of worship.

St. Pancras itself was named after a 14 year old boy from Asia Minor named Pancratius (A.D. 289-304), a convert to Christianity. He was beheaded by order of the Emperor Diocletian for refusing to sacrifice to the Roman gods. The old church of St. Pancras, traditionally older even than St. Paul’s Cathedral, was named after him.[2]
