Abenbury 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 ancient parish of Wrexham included the townships of Abenbury Fawr (or "Big Abenbury") and Abenbury Fechan (or "Little Abenbury"). The township of Abenbury Fechan was one of several exclaves of Flintshire and was only transferred to Denbighshire in 1884.

The civil parish of Abenbury was created in 1935 from parts of the old townships of Abenbury Fawr and Erlas.
