I've been watching a short series of 6 programms on TV, about the History of Britain, centered on Kibworth in Liecestershire.

The history of Kibworth,and it's inhabitants, are a microcosm of pretty much every town that existed when Kiborth was established.

Now to my question.:rolleyes:

The Diocese of Lincoln covered from the River Thames, to the Estuary of the Humber. Taking in Parts of Oxfordshire, and parts of Buckinghamshire.

Question: What parts of Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire.?

That interesting MLT......Princes Risborough, but not Monks Risborough.

The Diocese of Lincoln held 205 of 239 of the Bucks Parishes, as far as I've worked out. Some parishes gained their own churches in the early to mid 1800's, so I guess that Lincoln held them all beforehand.

So would the transcripts from all the parishes be sent to the 'mother church' of Lincoln.

Just to add.....!

The registers in Kibworth were left blank during the English Civil War, so confirming the fact of the missing.....'Commonwealth years'.

Noted by the Cleric of Kibworth.
