Pepper Gowt Plot (also known as Rowlands Marsh} was a tract of land gained by the straightening of the River Witham in the early 19th century. It lies about 2 miles north of the town of Boston, and just south of Antons Gowt. It was briefly a civil parish, between 1858 and 1906, when it was abolished to enlarge the parish of Skirbeck. Skirbeck parish was in turn abolished in 1932, and the area once known as Pepper Gowt Plot or Rowlands marsh, is simply known as Witham Marsh today, and falls within the parish of Fishtoft.
Birth, marriages and deaths were kept by the government, from July 1837 to the present day. The civil registration article tells more about these records. There are several Internet sites with name lists or indexes. A popular site is FreeBMD.
