A typed copy of the Parish Registers for Kingston was made
several years ago. In the era before PCs this was a large effort
by members of the Kingston History Society. Handwritten additions
have also been made from time to time since. Some errors will have
been made during this transcription effort and so all entries
should be checked back to the original records which are now
held in the County Records Office, Exeter.
This website contains scanned images of these transcriptions from our archives.
Searchable files have been added as an index for baptisms and later weddings.
