Armitage Parish Register
Armitage (or Armitage-with-Handsacre)has a very ancient history going back to evidence of a Roman battle happening there. Christianity was first thought to be brought to the area by Saint Chad in 672. It is thought that a church was later erected there by the Normans. The register contains baptism and burial records from 1673-1812 and marriage records from 1673-1754. From 1754-1812, the registers contains the usual paper marriage register issued after the passing of the Hardwick Marriages Act.
