THORNBER BAPTISM RECORDS IN LANCASHIRE
ENGLAND TO 1850

Part 2. Parishes M to W

Lancashire Rose

Not yet included are Burnley St Andrew, Clitheroe & Padiham.  The information is drawn from volumes of the Lancashire Parish Register Society transcripts, inspection of registers and microfilms at Lancashire County Record Office and the International Genealogical Index (IGI)

BE WARNED .   This listing is not complete because many of the parish register transcripts go only to 1812.  The IGI sometimes indexes up to 1837, when general registration began, but in cases where it goes beyond 1837 I have included entries up to 1850.  The IGI is on average only 50% complete for England.  Even for registers that have been indexed, the IGI does not necessarily cover all time periods for which the registers exist.  In some cases the IGI is based on the bishops' transcripts not on the original register and these often have missing years.  This table is intended to be only a signpost to further research.

The first thing to do for any record of interest is to check it yourself in the full register to see if there are further details such as the father's occupation and abode. 
The second thing to do is to consult the burial registers to see if the child died in infancy.  In some districts up to one third of children died before the age of 20 in the period covered. The information here is presented by place of worship then by date.
