Wirksworth Parish Records


​Wirksworth - A Millennium One-Place-Study website

The Wirksworth Parish Records website is an absolutely fabulous research tool for anyone who has ancestors that lived in Wirksworth. I've found it invaluable for researching the Ogdon's family history. All credit to John Palmer of Poole, Dorset who has spent many years creating the website.

The Genealogy and Local History of the Wirksworth Area, Derbyshire, England from 1600 to 1900 listing 450,000+ original records

The Wirksworth website is believed to be the largest and most detailed study of an English Parish on the Internet

The Wirksworth website contains the results of an intensive ten-year One-Place-Study of the Parish of Wirksworth in central Derbyshire, England. A large number of Baptisms, Marriages, Burials, Census entries, Pedigrees, MIs, Crimes, Wills, Old photos and local histories are listed and indexed. Most of the data has been transcribed by the author from microfilm of the original documents and new data is frequently added. Much of the information covers all Derbyshire not just Wirksworth.

You are invited to use the website to study the way of life of the people or trace your ancestors from the Wirksworth Area.
