Thornhill is an 'ancient' parish (created before 1813) in the diocese of Wakefield. Church of England records for Thornhill St. Michael's survive from 1580.  Other pre-1837 Church of England (Anglican) churches in Thornhill parish include:

  • St. James the Greater, Flockton (with records from 1813) 

The original registers are deposited at the West Yorkshire Archives in Wakefield.  Microfilm/fiche copies are available at archive branches such as Leeds at Sheepscar and Kirklees in Huddersfield.

The copies made by the minister (ordered by an Act of 1598) and sent each year to the Bishop of the diocese (known as parish register transcripts or Bishop's transcripts) survive from 1600 and are deposited at the West Yorkshire Archives branch in Sheepscar, Leeds. 

The Family History Library in Salt Lake City has both parish registers and bishop's transcripts on microfilm for Thornhill and its chapelry, which are listed in the FamilySearch Catalog.  Many of these records are indexed in the International Genealogical Index available online through the 'Advanced Search' at www.familysearch.org.
