Sennen Parish Registers



The transcription of the Sennen Parish Records has been carried out by two different groups. Dealing first with the marriages, these were transcribed by Margaret Owens the Secretary of the Cornish Association of Victoria Inc., Australia, and also the Convenor of the St.Just District Research Group. Margaret carried out the transcription using a copy of the printed register published by Phillimore and Taylor this was augmented by using other information such as the Cornwall Family History Society's publication "Cornwall Marriage Transcription Index". I would like to extend my thanks to Margaret for allowing us to put her work onto this site.

Births & Burials.

This transcription of the Birth and Burial records has been carried our by myself  and my husband George. We have transcribed the records from a hand written record which is lodged at the Morrab Library in Penzance. This was the work of W Treffry Hoblyn which he carried out using the original parish registers.  W. T. Hoblyn was an official transcriber for the Royal Institution of Cornwall. 

Even though every care has been taken to check and recheck the work, we would advise that the only way to verify any transcription is to return to the actual records. If you need to do this then these are kept at the Cornwall Records Office, Truro, Cornwall.


The following is entered on the first page of W Treffry Hoblyn's transcription book.
