Welcome to my idea of fun,

This project started in 1987, and after 10 years, I saw the only way to publish my work was to use the Internet. I began building this web site in Oct 1998 - when computers and internet made easier communication.

1. The Census - I have changed the original to alphabetic order. The houses are numbered - page, then position on the page.
Page 1 begins with Ackley Richard & his wife in House 27.12
Page 2 begins with Eccourt William & his wife in House 26.03
Page 3 begins with Pagler John & his wife in House 9.12

2. The total of 546 households - Introduction, and Notes,

3. Adding the Parish Registrar - Births, Marriages and Deaths
For a practical example of information in the registers, see my page on Hester Winterson or on her cousin Hannah Winterson - be warned, these sites includes very large illustrations of pages from the parish registers.
What can we learn from the Registers? - notes on Twins 1701-70, Boy's names, Girl's names and how the population grew, as Smallpox prevention began.

4. Going back - the Hearth Rolls at Kew Records Office,
the Longtree Hundred consisted of Tetbury which I divided into Tetbury A-G, Tetbury H-P and Tetbury R-Z, and 10 smaller villages,
Avening, Cherington, Culkerton, Horsley, Minchin Hampton, Rodborough, Rodmartin, Shipton Moyne, Weston Birt, and Woodchester

5. Wills have now been made available by the Gloucester Records Office - see the Genealogical Database which contains an index of names based on items including Wills proved at Gloucester from 1541 to 1858
My notes include a list of Wills I read, and two samples, the wills of Matthew Beale 1717, and John Jones 1832
Bigland recorded the Cemetry when he visited before his death in 1784

7. Parish Records of Tetbury
Settlement rules, 123 orders by Date and Names A - L, and M - W
Care of the Poor - Charity, Motherhood, Apprenticeships,

8. The end result - Families by each surname - A, B C, D, E, F, G, H, I , J, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, YZ,

Every care has been taken with the information on these pages. The Parish registers are transcripts of photocopies from the microfishe, and errors can occur for many reasons. It is therefore strongly recommended that each entry is checked against original records.
