Revision as of 21:18, 30 January 2012

My current focus is to develope 22 parishes within the County of Suffolk, District of Hoxne.  I have put a geographical map on each parish page as such:

Geographic Location Map

{{Geographic location |title = '''Neighbouring Parishes''' |
Center = Tannington |
North = [[Wilby, Suffolk|Wilby]] |
Northeast = [[Brundish, Suffolk|Brundish]] |
East = [[Dennington, Suffolk|Dennington]] |
Southeast = [[Saxstead, Suffolk|Saxtead]] |
South = [[Earl Soham, Suffolk|Earl Soham]] |
Southwest = [[Bedfield, Suffolk|Bedfield]] |
West = [[Worlingworth, Suffolk|Worlingworth]] : [[Bedfield, Suffolk|Bedfield]] |
Northwest = [[Worlingworth, Suffolk|Worlingworth]] }}


I also have created a Navigation Box for the parishes within Hoxne district as such: 

This NavBox is on the Tannington parish page and a few others at the present moment.

TOC and NOTOC

I have started to use the TOC and NOTOC on the webpages mentioned above. Those tags move and remove the contents box that is automatically generated when four or more headings appear on a page. Most of the pages are quite short right now so I am using NOTOC on the parish pages. The content box that is automatically generated often appears out of place.
I have put comment tags next to it so if someone edits the page they will know what the tags are for <!-- The tag __TOC__ allows one to move the contents box anywhere on the page. The Tag __NOTOC__ removes the contents box from the page-->

Area Conversion from Acres

Many of the areas noted in gazetteers and histories of parishes and other places are in acres. I have found a website that converts acres to square miles or square kilometers at metric conversions.org Most people are more familar with how large a square mile or kilometer is than an acre. Such as 3592 acres = 5.6 square miles or 14.5 square kilometers


The Parish Registers begin in 1559.  They can be view at the Suffolk Record Office.  A copy of the registers from 1559 to 1900 can be purchased from the  Suffolk Record Office.  For pre 1813 Bishop Transcript entries you will need to look in Hoxne Deanry, Archdeaconry of Suffolk.  Parish Chest records are considerable for Metfield.   See Suffolk Church Record for further details.
