Hempstead (General)

I have just completed transcribing the pre-1837 Hempstead registers which will be added to the database in the near future. My reason for choosing to do this was that when doing my own research I found a number of family marriages at Hempstead, and so thought others might benefit from the transcriptions.

One very surprising fact that has emerged is that between 1813 and 1837 there were 171 baptisms, 194 burials and an amazing 1,852 marriages. Almost all the marriages gave the residence of bride and groom as the extraparochial hamlet of Littleworth. Can anyone explain this?
