Welcome to my Tetbury on the Web! Have a virtual cup of gourmet coffee to get yourself in the mood, and then scroll down Tetbury's 822 families of 1700 to 1770.|
I began with being shown the 1735 Census in mid 1987, started building this web site in Oct 1998 - when computers and internet made easier communication and am checking it in Sep, 2009. Enjoy your visit.
The old church, illustrated to the left,
was demolished in 1777, with the
exception of the tower and spire.

All dates are converted to new style (year starting on Jan 1st) and shown as year - month - day.
For example 17360726 means 26 July 1736.
The British Empire (including the eastern part of what is now the United States) adopted the Gregorian calendar in 1752 (see the Calendar (New Style) Act 1750) by which time it was necessary to correct by 11 days. Wednesday, September 2, 1752 was followed by Thursday, September 14, 1752 to account for February 29, 1700 (Julian). After 1753, the British tax year in Britain continued to operate on the Julian calendar and began on 5 April, which was the "old style" new tax year of 25 March.
The new year for the English-speaking world then became 1 January, and the discrepancy between dates, which had grown from eleven to twelve days, was resolved when Parliament declared that 2 September 1752 was to be followed immediately by 14 September 1752.

This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project to make the world's books discoverable online.
It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover.
Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the publisher to a library and finally to you.
Sadly - links are getting closed, I feel sorry each time one vanishes.
