Birth Registrations in Dr.Williams' Library, London

GANDER and GANDAR

This Library is named after a Dr Daniel Williams (c.1643-1716), a Presbyterian minister, after whose death a Library was set up in London in his name. Amongst its aims was that, for a small fee, it kept a 'central registry' of births mainly (but not solely) within non-conformist families to avoid the necessity of having to have a child baptised in the Anglican church. It had variable success, up to 49,000 births were registered there until after a few months of the national Births, Marriages and Deaths Registration starting up in 1837. These registers are now at the National Archives under class RG5 and indexed in RG4.
