Why Me?

Middle names are an invaluable resource for finding clues to family relationships. Often a person's middle name is the same as the maiden name of their mother or a grandmother. Unfortunately the IGI does not have a middle name index and so does not provide the ability to search for them. So, to overcome this limitation, I have created a middle name index to the online IGI for all the Exeter area churches and non-conformist chapels that I could find there. These are listed below.

There are nearly 4,000 different middle names (some of which are obvious transcription errors for each other) appearing in nearly 16,000 christening/birth/adult baptism and nearly 4,000 marriage records in this area of Devon. This is out of a total of over 118,000 christening/birth/adult baptism and 87,000 marriage records (representing half that number of marriages, of course, since there are two records in the IGI for each marriage) for these churches/chapels alone. I have done my best to eliminate the most obvious entries that are clearly Christian names (such as Willm., Ann, etc.) but I'm sure I didn't catch them all - and some (like Andrew/Andrews) could be either. So, this is a potentially huge untapped source of information and there is a good chance that one of your families' surnames is amongst the middle names I have found!! Who knows - it might even provide that missing link or clue to knocking down that brick wall.

To access the index click below on the first letter of the name you are interested in and a list of middle names starting with that letter will display in a new browser window. Then click on the name of interest and you will obtain more detail including links to the detailed records on the LDS site at familysearch.org

Select the first letter of your name of interest:

A   B   C   D   E   F   G   H   I   J   K   L   M   N   O   P   Q   R   S   T   U   V   W   X   Y   Z

IGI Batch numbers covered in this index

The following are the Exeter Area IGI batch numbers from which this index has been extracted. Note that this is only batches related to church or chapel records, not LDS member submitted entries or similar. One problem with Devon and the IGI is that, in the case of the Church of England, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was not granted permission to film parish registers or BTs for most of Devon so the IGI information is taken from transcripts where available and so the information that results may be a transcript of a transcript. In addition some of these transcripts (St. Budeaux, for example) are only of selected names from those registers and so are by no means complete. As always, you should use this simply as a finding aid. There is no substitute for viewing the original records (or at least fiche or film of them).
