CASTOR LOCAL RECORDS- CONTENTS LIST

 

When we were cleaning out Major Pelham’s Military Chest (now in the Cedar Centre Loft) in the Vestry at Castor, we came across an old wooden box with the original local records of the Parish Officers dating back to 1714 , with records up to 1881. This was in 2000AD. The records have since been transcribed, and the originals sent to Northamptonshire County Record Office. This file is a guide to the Contents, copies of which are now in the Parish Archives, with photocopies of some of the originals.  In many cases the named records have a short family biography, including names of other members of the family and parish of origin.
