Norfolk Records added to Ancestry

Ancestry have added over 4 million Norfolk Parish records to their collection. These records reveal the long history of immigration to the area since the time of Henry VIII. Over the centuries large groups of Flemish, Walloon, Dutch, Huguenot and Italian settlers have been attracted to the area and their multi-cultural influence can still be seen in the trades and architecture of the region. It was Flemish settlers who introduced canary breeding and exporting to the city of Norwich in the 1600s and the bird is still reflected in the emblem, colours and nickname of Norwich City Football Club.

The records are as follows:

Norfolk, England, Church of England Births and Baptisms, 1813-1915

Norfolk, England, Church of England Baptism, Marriages, and Burials, 1535-1812

The records can also be found on FindmyPast and The Genealogist which added them earlier in 2016.
