Parish History

Elvington Holy Trinity is an Ancient Parish in the unitary authority of the City of York which was part of the East Riding of Yorkshire until local government boundary changes in 1974, when it became part of the Selby district in North Yorkshire. In 1996 it became part of the City of York unitary authority. see Elvington City of York Wikipedia

The church of Holy Trinity Church Lane Elvington has been designated asa grade II listed building British listed building

This ancient parish (AP) was created before 1813. Church of England records began in 1600.


Civil Registration

Records from York Registration District held at York are included in the online index available at Yorkshire BMD for post 1837 events; view the coverage table to check progress on the availability of index search.

Marriages include

  • Church of England marriages.
  • Civil Marriages at register offices, or non-conformist churches where a registrar was required to be present at the ceremony.
  • Authorised Person marriages. These cover the non-conformist places of worship which applied to keep their own registers as a result of the Marriage Act, 1898 (bringing them into line with Jewish and Quaker marriages which had this status since 1837). In such cases an 'Authorised Person' (usually the minister or priest) recorded the ceremony instead of the registrar. Earlier weddings in these places would be included with civil marriage registers.

A secondary index of Birth, marriages and deaths were kept by the government, from July 1837 to the present day. The civil registration article tells more about these . There are several Internet sites with name lists or indexes. A popular site is FreeBMD however this secondary index may omit the event and may not contain the detail of the Yorkshire BMD index
