"HALLOW, '''''a parish''''', in the union of Martley, Lower division of the hundred of Oswaldslow, Worcester and W. divisions of the county of Worcester, 3 miles (N. N. W.) from Worcester; containing, with the chapelry of Broadheath and hamlet of Shoulton, 1228 inhabitants. This is a fertile parish, comprising a considerable area of land, of which the river Severn forms the eastern boundary. From a Chamber-order book of the city of Worcester (date 1575) it appears that Queen Elizabeth chose this spot for hunting purposes, killing two bucks here during her visit to Worcester. The mansion of Hallow Park, a handsome seat, occupies the summit of a small eminence, near the village, and not far westward of the Severn, which adds greatly to the beauty of the well-wooded grounds. The manor of Woodhall, the residence of the abbots of Worcester, now belongs to Francis Hooper, Esq., as lessee under the Bishop of Worcester. The living is annexed to the vicarage of Grimley. The church was rebuilt in 1830, and contains 600 sittings, whereof 300 are free: in 1839 an organ was erected, by subscription. The remains of the distinguished surgeon, Sir Charles Bell, who died at Hallow Park in 1842, are interred in the churchyard. On Hallow common, about half a mile beyond the village, is a place of worship for Independents. A school has an endowment of £70 per annum; and in the village is a useful circulating library. There is a chalybeate spring. —See Broadheath."

Parish History[edit | edit source]

"HALLOW, a parish, in the union of Martley, Lower division of the hundred of Oswaldslow, Worcester and W. divisions of the county of Worcester, 3 miles (N. N. W.) from Worcester; containing, with the chapelry of Broadheath and hamlet of Shoulton, 1228 inhabitants.  There is a place of worship for Independents.  —See Broadheath."[1]

Resources[edit | edit source]

Civil Registration[edit | edit source]

Birth, marriages and deaths were kept by the government, from July 1837 to the present day. The civil registration article tells more about these records. There are several Internet sites with name lists or indexes. A popular site is FreeBMD.

Church records[edit | edit source]

The original parish registers, 1584-1982 are held at the Worcestershire Record Office, City Centre Branch (otherwise known as the Worcestershire Library and History Centre)

Trinity Street
Worcester
WR1 2PW
England
Tel: 01905 765922
Fax: 01905 765925
Email: WLHC@worcestershire.gov.uk
Website: www.worcestershire.gov.uk/records/

For complete information, including map and hours of operation, see The National Archives Archon Directory

The Family History Library has microfilmed the parish registers, parish chest records, and some transcripts have been microfilmed. See FHL catalog for film numbers.

The Bishop's Transcripts for Worcester were filmed twice. The second filming is not complete, but contains the following:

Hallow Bishop Transcripts, 2nd filming
Notes Dates Film
 Baptisms, marriages and burials (most pages are out of order and many are missing)   1609-1640, 1660-1700        FHL Film 246658 Item 2  
baptisms, marriages and burials 1820-1832  FHL  Film 350575 Item 6
baptisms and burials 1833-1838   FHL Film 350589 Item 1  
marriages 1833-1837   FHL Film 350589 Item 1  
Baptisms and burials 1838-1875   FHL  Film 350639 Item 1  

The first filming was not arranged by parish, but by year for the whole county. Thus, each year's transcripts are on a different microfilm. An FHL finding aid giving FHL film numbers by parish is available as FHL book 942.4 K29bt, also available on microfiche at Family History Centers, fiche 6035756 (2 fiches).  

Census records[edit | edit source]

Probate records[edit | edit source]

Records of wills, administrations, inventories, indexes, etc. were filed by the court with jurisdiction over this parish. Go to Worcestershire Probate Records to find the name of the court having primary jurisdiction. Scroll down in the article to the section Court Jurisdictions by Parish.

Maps and Gazetteers[edit | edit source]

Maps are a visual look at the locations in England. Gazetteers contain brief summaries about a place.

Websites[edit | edit source]

References[edit | edit source]
