Devon parish records added to FindmyPast

FindmyPast ( has uploaded millions of new Devon parish records, including baptisms, banns, marriages and burials 1538-1915 from Devon Heritage Services’ Exeter and Barnstaple record offices. The data compliments a previous release for Devon from Plymouth and West Devon.

Tim Wormleighton, of Devon Heritage Services said: “We are delighted that, after a lengthy process of preparation involving a lot of hard work by a large team, people will now be able to access high quality images of the majority of Devon’s parish register entries online for the first time ever through findmypast”.
