Rhosddu 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 Rhosddu was formed by an Order in Council in 1886, containing the townships of Acton, Bieston and Gourton (from the parish of Wrexham), the township of Borras Riffri (from the parish of Gresford), and the township of Stansty (from the parish of Gwersyllt).

In 1888, small parts of the townships of Broughton and Gwersyllt, from the parish of Gwersyllt, were added to it.

In 1972, Rhosddu reverted to the parish of Wrexham [Information taken from http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/wal/DEN/Rhosddu/index.html (last accessed July 2015)]
