This page lists some 17th century Halam parish registers. Please be aware that these are transcriptions of LDS photocopies of the original registers, and like all transcriptions may contain errors. They should therefore be used only as a guide, and entries of interest should be checked against fiche copies of the original registers.

Spellings are as in the original source, so may not always be what you expect. If you are checking the surnames index for a particular name, look carefully for alternative spellings.

The register contents are listed verbatim, which means that the baptisms, marriages and burials are in separate sub-sections, with original headings. A sub-section is also given for church officials...
