    I see Ancestry has just added "All England & Wales, Quaker Birth, Marriage, and Death Registers, 1578-1837" to its collection.

    Great for those with Quaker ancestry :)

    Thanks for letting us know, Ann.

    I will take a look at them the next time that I am at the library. :)

    This is series RG 6 although you have to search the small print on Ancestry to find that out.

    The catalogue entry is here -

    http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/SearchUI/Details?uri=C13331

    The series has been available on BMDRegisters for some time. If you've already searched there, don't go buying Ancestry credits just in the hope of finding something new!

    From Googling 'The Peculiar People UK' (of whom I had heard), so many info sites come up. too many to read & report on just now.

    A good general outline can be found at Wikipedia

    Don't forget you can download the 1851 religious census. If the Peculiar People had registered places of worship you might find something interesting there.

    When I was a boy, up to 1939, we lived in Hockley, Essex. At the bottom of the road was a brick Chapel, the home of the Peculiar People. All I can remember is that every Sunday morning, they sang and sang for hours. It used to be said that they sang until the Spirit moved them !
    I seem to remember that they were dressed very respectably and had cars - which was not all that common at that time.
