Potterne Parish Registers

(St. Mary the Virgin)

St Mary the Virgin Church Over time I intend to gradually transcribe and upload the baptisms, marriages and burials of Potterne. The information has not been validated and should be verified before using

Many parish entries have not been transcribed because they are either illegible, faint, unclear or water damaged etc
