 as preserved in the National Archives, Kew
 and edited by Sue Mackay

Additonal Information

This is pre 1820 information mainly taken from actual images of parish registers held at the London Metropolitan Archives, Westminster Archives, West Yorkshire Archives, Manchester Central Library, non-conformist registers at the National Archives at Kew (RG4), online parish registers at CityArk or from original images at Family Search. I have also included some information from original images of Scottish old parish registers and English parish records which I have personally researched. Where reference is made to the London Gazette, the full version can be downloaded from

CHURCH, James Luke - Extra Data


(see correspondence of Thomas OWEN)


Henry CHURCH is listed as a settler in The Settler Handbook, but according to a descendant, the settler Henry CHURCH did not arrive in South Africa. In his place was James Luke CHURCH and his wife, Elizabeth GREENACRE, who wrote a memorial to prove that it was indeed him that arrived in the Thomas OWEN party


London Metropolitan Archives:

James Luke CHURCH, bachelor, married Elizabeth GREENACRE, spinster, by Licence on 30 October 1819 in St.Mary's, Lewisham.

Both signed their names.

Witnesses: Thomas KNOOK and Mary LEWIS
