To help you get further in Leicestershire, we’ve also got an extract from the Parish Registers for the village of Muston and from the Pedigree of Wood of Leicestershire. The parish registers cover the 1561-1730. The pedigree is of Henry Wood, an 18th century freeman of Leicester and goes as far as the 19th century. These two resources are provided by Anguline Research Archives. Both are fully searchable on your PC.

Find the Scottish quakers in your tree

Once you’ve traced your family’s Scottish inheritance with our records expert guide, you can get on the trail of the Scots marriages in your tree. Get a headstart with an index to Scottish Quaker marriages, provided by Maxwell Ancestry. This represents all surviving records of the marriages of Quakers in Scotland between 1656 and 1873. The vast majority (if not all) of these marriages (before 1855) are not recorded in the official Old Parish Registers.
