The online Romney Marsh Baptisms Index is the work of local historians and genealogists Gary Samson, Bob Chown and the late David Hills. David painstakingly transcribed the baptism records of the following 15 parishes in the Romney Marsh registration district between August 2003 and December 2004: Brenzett, Brookland, Burmarsh, Dymchurch, Fairfield, Hope All Saints, Ivychurch, Lydd, Lydd Independent, New Romney, Newchurch, Old Romney, Snargate, Snave and St Mary in the Marsh. This searchable, web-based version of these transcriptions was produced by Gary Samson of the Woodchurch Ancestry Group.

Searching is by first name and last name (required), with an option to specify an exact or soundex match for the last name. Searches can be made for specific parishes and/or for particular year ranges; by default all parishes and all years from 1750 to 1911 are included.


Further information concerning the parishes and the dates of baptisms included in these transcriptions, together with any gaps, can be found here.
