Marriages at St. Thomas the Apostle

Southwark, Surrey, England
1614-1753

St. Thomas Hospital and Church

"The small parish of ST. THOMAS APOSTLE was formed out of the precinct and possessions of the hospital of St. Thomas of Canterbury which once were in St. Olave's parish. ... A tablet in the church ascribed its foundation to Edward VI in 1552, and absence of references to the parish in all but one of the earlier records supports this statement."

"There are twelve books of registers: (1) to (5) baptisms and burials 1614 to 1688, 1691 to 1730, marriages 1614 to 1653, 1658 to 1670, 1664 to 1687, 1691 to 1730; (6) and (7) baptisms 1731 to 1812; (8) and (9) burials 1731 to 1812; (10) to (12) marriages 1731 to 1812."

This church parish borders on that of St. George the Martyr, the parish my Hopkins ancestors lived in. In an attempt to find more background on my family, I've transcribed the names of Hopkinses and other related surnames who were married in this church between the years 1614 and 1753. This information came from the FHL film #0416729.
