Whilst it may be the case in the US that the name of the Anglican Parish does not appear in Quaker records, it needs to be explained that the practiceis not uncommon in the UK. The name of the Anglican Parish often appears in the Quaker registers of Births Death and Marriages, to indicate the location of a members residence, particularly when there was more than one Parish within the boundaries of one town.
The reasons are probably due to the local administrative arrangemenst in the UK, which between 1601 and 1894 were based upon Anglican Parishes. After 1894 Civil Parishes were created, initially they were based upon the Anglican Parish boundaries, However today many Civil Parishes boundaries are not synonomous with the Anglican Parish boundaries.
I realise that the case under review is in the US and therefore UK practice is not relevant. However, I feel it is appropriate to explain that the practice in the US does not reflect that in the UK, where the Parish has been an important feature of Local Administration for more than 400 years.
