Church of England records from Holy Trinity Church Dubbo At our library rooms we hold photo copies of baptisms, and marriages conducted by the clergy of the Holy Trinity parish.

Details that can be found on entries include, date of baptism, date of birth, child’s christian name/s, parents’ names, abode, occupation of father and by whom the ceremony was performed. The first baptism in the register is for Agnes, child of John and Agnes Angus who lived at Marthaguy at the time their baby was baptised on 24 May 1874. Agnes was born on 17 February 1873. Her father was a labourer.

Marriage register records are from 8 November 1884 to 29 December 1886, then from 8 August 1900 to 6 August 1978. These records are photo copies of the actual parish registers, containing all the information that you will find on the certified copy from the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages. Details include date of marriage, full names of bride and groom, age at time of marriage, their address, occupation and details of parents of the bride and groom. Birthplace of the bride and groom and their conjugal status at the time of the marriage, all this important information also contains the signatures of the bride and groom, priest conducting the ceremony along with the witnesses, who are often family members.

The first marriage record to appear in the register on 8 November 1884 was between Walter Thomas Ross and Christina Eason. Walter Ross had been born in Yorkshire and Christina Eason had been born in Norfolk, England.
