South Australian births, deaths and marriages before civil registration

Civil registration began in South Australia on 1 June 1842 and that means we have a mere six years of European settlement outside civil registration. 

Births:

'While the colony never recognised any Established Church, the Colonial Chaplain was Anglican and very few other churches were represented in the Colony prior to June 1842. The known surviving church registers include:
Anglican: Adelaide (Holy) Trinity from 1836
Catholic:
Adelaide circuit from 1839
Church of Scotland:
Adelaide Holy Trinity from 1837
Presbyterian:
Gouger Street Adelaide from 1839
Society of Friends:
Pennington Tce Meeting House from 1841

Other sources include newspaper personal columns, BISA (Biographical Index of South Australians 1836–1885) and published family histories. When civil registration commenced parents were invited to register children born previously and some 468 born in the colony were registered.

Marriages

Apart from the Colonial Chaplain, some civil officials also conducted marriages. A small number of marriages were performed by other denominations:
Anglican:
Adelaide (Holy) Trinity from 1836
Church of Scotland:
Scotch Church from 1841
Congregational:
Stow Church from 1837
Lutheran:
Hahndorf from 1839; Klemzig from 1838
United Presbyterian:
Gouger Street from 1839
Society of Friends:
Pennington Tce Meeting House from 1841 

Other sources include newspaper personal columns, BISA and published family histories.

Anglican:
Adelaide (Holy) Trinity from 1837
General:

Other sources include newspaper personal columns, BISA and published family histories.
