Population trends in the Parish of Biddulph, 1700-1800

Population Study for the Parish of Biddulph, 1700-1800

My aim was to study the parish registers of St. Lawrence, Biddulph, from 1700 until 1800, to transcribe and collate the information gleaned – adding it to a very simple spread sheet. From this, I hoped that I would be able to draw conclusions as to general population trends (as extrapolated from baptisms and burials) and to look at such trends in greater detail by using family reconstitutions.
