      New data available on English Origins (www.englishorigins.com)

      Origins.net is pleased to announce that 2 important new datasets have
      now been uploaded onto English Origins – Boyd's London Burials (1538 –
      1872) and Boyd's Cornwall Marriage Index (1538-1834), both exclusive
      to Origins.net in association with the Society of Genealogists.

      Boyd's London Burials (over 240,000 names)

      This dataset, completed by Percival Boyd in 1934, is an index to "a
      few of the burials in the London area 1538 - 1872. The entries were
      restricted "as far as possible" to burials of adult males, and give
      the surname, forename, year of death and the burial ground. There are
      243,000 entries. Where the age at death was given in the original
      records Boyd recorded this, but only a small proportion of the
      records contain the age. For more information about this data and
      details of how to search, please go to:

      Boyd's Marriage Index – Cornwall (over 280,000 names)

      With the inclusion of the county of Cornwall, English Origins now
      holds records for every county covered by Boyd's Marriage Index.

      Boyd's Marriage Index is an index to English marriages taken from
      copies of parish marriage registers, Bishop's Transcripts and
      marriage licences, for the period 1538 to 1840 (when statutory
      registration began). It was principally the work of Percival Boyd,
      MA, FSA, FSG (1866-1955) and his staff. It was made at his expense
      between 1925 and 1955, and has since been expanded. (for more

      "English Origins is an essential online stop. It has unique resources
      and key index tools (apprenticeship records and Boyd's indexes are my
      favourites) as well as a real commitment to quality." Sherry Irvine,
      past President of the Association of Genealogists.
