We are currently working on the parish registers and the census records for Hickling and information will follow as soon as we have it ready. If you have any queries, please use the general enquiry email address: .

The first entries in the Hickling Parish Register of 1646. Microfiche images of the original records are held at Notts Archives.

(February 2022) We now have scanned images of the original Parish Registers for Hickling (Births, Deaths and Marriages); unfortunately, there is still a considerable amount of work to be done.

The Hickling records begin in 1646 and they carry fascinating indications of the people involved: massive ink blots that have soaked through several pages; notes with extra information, even doodles & sketches. Each Rector has his own style and, inevitably, greater or lesser degrees of illegible handwriting …

Ultimately, we hope to be able to make transcriptions available but, in the meantime, if you would like to check any of your research against the original entries, please contact us.

In addition, we have recently purchased access to a collection of transcriptions of parish records across Nottinghamshire which has been meticulously produced by volunteers of the Nottinghamshire Family History Society; please contact us, if you have any enquiries that we can help with.
