Eversholt Marriages

The spreadsheet below is a first attempt at the register of marriages in Eversholt. This is similar to, but not a copy of, the printed transcript of the Eversholt Parish register.

“Original Date” is the date of burial stated in the parish register. For dates before 14 September 1752, the registers use the Julian Calendar. From that date on, they use the Gregorian Calendar. The “Original Calendar” column tells which calendar was in use. The “Extended Gregorian Date” is the date of burial expressed as though today’s Gregorian calendar had always been in use. This helps when comparing two dates to find out which is earlier, or in working out the day of the week, since the spreadsheet can only compute with the Gregorian Calendar. The “day” column tells what day of the week the burial occurred on.
The “date wrong” column for a handful of entries tells that the date given in the register has been changed for the spreadsheet, because it seemed to be wrong. September 31st, anyone?
Anyone, with or without a google login, should be able to go here and take a copy of the spreadsheet for their own use.
