The Baptism and Marriage Card Index records, for the Churches (and the House of Industry) of the Isle of Wight, are held by the Isle of Wight Record Office (IWRO) and have been based on the Registers compiled, for the most part, by Parish officers.

You will need to enter the user name (iowfhs) and the current password, in order to search these indexes. The password is changed in February each year and is given in the current Journal sent to paid up Members with full membership, or available as an eJournal on this website.

Some Parish Register entries for the period 1537 - 1858 are being transcribed by IWFHS Volunteers, and we now can present these as a searchable database. The records are searchable by Surname within a date range, for any church, or for a particular church. You can also search for all events registered at a particular church.


As with all such records there may be errors in transcription so it is best to check with the original registers if possible.

The Index coverage is given on the Search page.
