Summary
  • Register, 1830-1916, of both Abingdon and Ware Parishes. Includes baptisms, confirmations, membership rolls, communicants, marriages, deaths, burials, and tombstone inscriptions (in the 1700's). Some entries show references to Kingston Parish. After 1867, the entries refer only to Ware Parish. (Accession 19991)
  • Vestry book, 11 November 1865-4 September 1894. The minutes indicate that the vestries of Abingdon and Ware Parishes met together until the meeting of 6 June 1867, at which time the close association between the parishes dissolved and parish lines were changed. The minutes are concerned with the administrative affairs of the parish. The vestry, though, did not meet at regular intervals. (Accession 29471)
