Inch Parish Church (Church of Ireland), Inch Island, County Donegal, Ireland Marriages 1846-89

Transcribed, Compiled and Submitted by
Len Swindley, Melbourne, Australia

Extracted from numerous LDS FHL films of Civil Registration of Marriages in Ireland and where original copies of the certificates may be downloaded at no cost

The condition of the original records and the quality of filming make transcription challenging and at times difficult. Where possible, the Inch tithe applotment book (1837) and Griffiths Valuation (c1858) have been consulted for confirmation of families and townland addresses.

Originally one of five chapels within Templemore parish, it was changed to a Perpetual Curacy in 1809. The church was built in 1766. Always a small congregation, the church was closed in 1962

Baptisms, 1868-1951
