What does d/p 129/1/5 mean

Postby vito74 » Fri Jun 09, 2017 6:34 pm

I have obtained a Berkshire baptism record and at the side is source:d/p 129/1/5. I wonder what this means? Is it a code to be able to find it on another site. It has date then people columns then the code in other details. Any help?

How would I be able to see the original book to see if it has the mothers maiden name?

In general terms, you have to find out if Berkshire parish records are online first, and if so, what are they? Images of the originals​? Transcripts? If so, are they full transcripts or extracts?

If not online, then you will need to find a library or Record Office with microfilms or microfiche of those PRs. Probably, not necessarily, in Berkshire, also possibly at a Mormon Family History Centre.

Anglican parish registers do not normally mention the mother's maiden name. We have to adopt other methods to find out what it was.

The odds are indeed that the mother's maiden name isn't there. But very, very occasionally, parishes used, probably only for a very short time, extended format registers such as Dade, Barrington or whatever that contain the maiden names. Finding out whether your parish of interest used such, requires either excellent coverage in reference sites such as GENUKI or the LDS Wiki for the county, or doing the research yourself by looking in the originals or their equivalents.

But yes, the odds aren't good.

So far as I am aware Dade registers were confined to Yorkshire and Barrington registers to Durham.

I've never seen anything similar in registers in the Diocese of Oxford.

Very likely Peter. Extended registers of varying forms were a bit more widespread - we have them in Cheshire, e.g.

I was trying to be generic, however, because others might read the answer. Happy to believe anyone about Berkshire.
