These are church records from the Anglican Christ Church Cathedral in Newcastle, New South Wales. Included in this collection are baptisms, marriages, and burials. Newcastle Family History Society Inc. has provided these transcripts, which will include a combination of the following details:
Father’s first name(s)
Mother’s first name(s)
The records included in this collection span the years from 1804 to 1900. The transcripts were made from the original Christ Church Registers that are held at the University of Newcastle, Cultural Collections. Christ Church was originally built in 1817. It was knocked down in 1884 to allow for the building of the current cathedral.
Currently, in this collection of parish registers, we have just over 5,000 baptisms, around 2,200 marriages records, and just over 3,300 burials. Some burials have also been transcribed from newspapers and other sources.
