Dear David,

Sorry I've been so long answering, just got back from 5 weeks vacation in the Outer Hebrides. Here are all the BLACKWELL records I have in my computer records. Please let me know if you make any connection with this period. I specialise in 17th Century Wirksworth, and keep a database of all those who have traced ancestors to this area. I can put you in touch with others searching.

You are most welcome to use these records on the Internet. I am a member of the Derbyshire Family History Society, #3934, but because I live 200 miles south of Derbyshire I rarely get a chance to attend meetings.

Good hunting, John; June 4, 1996

NOTES

C=christening, M=marriage, B=burial. Firstnames usually translated from Latin Christenings Aug 1669-Feb 1672 are missing from all records.

Rel=Relationship. Comments=omitted for lack of space
Modern calendar dates used i.e. year starts at 1 Jan NOT 25 Mar (So 24 Mar 1669 in records is listed here as 24 Mar 1670)

DISCLAIMER

Please remember Gothic handwriting in poor condition can be abominable to read. Mistakes and missreadings will happen. Transcriber is only human.

"?" inserted where missing, unreadable or uncertain.
Spelling was highly variable and churchwardens often ill-educated.
