Local Records for Longsleddale - 1555 to 1911
We have transcribed a variety of records between 1555 to 1911 which relate to the people of Longsleddale. Some data has been re-organised for consistency, in particular using surname, forename(s) but have used actual spellings for names and houses wherever possible. Numerical dates are used throughout; prior to the calender change of 1752, dates might be listed old year/modern year but are ordered under the modern year. Illegible entries are shown in [square brackets]: anything in (round brackets) is not part of the transcription but added by us, a comment, or perhaps more precise data - for example, attaching (Low) (Middle) or (High) to Sadgill, where there is clear evidence to support it.
For PRINTING you are advised to use the stand-alone print-ready version, closing it afterwards. Choosing landscape orientation will often give more legible results, especially for some of the Source web-pages which are wide. Where the web-pages are long, print-preview can help you to choose which parts you want to print. You may also DOWNLOAD the data from each table as a comma separated text file and save it for your own use.
