Broughton Parish Records

Archive Collection

Scope and Content

The records of individual ecclesiastical parishes include registers of baptisms, marriages and burials, as well as records of the churchwardens and Parochial Church Councils, parish charities, schools, clubs and societies.

Parish records were deposited at the Clwyd Record Office, following an agreement of 1976 between the Church in Wales and the Welsh County Councils.

The new parish of Broughton was formed by an Order in Council on 15 February 1909, from part of the township of Broughton, which since 1844 had been in the parish of Brymbo. [Information taken from http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/wal/DEN/Broughton/index.html (last accessed June 2015)]
