This project is a genealogical one place study of Sturminster Newton, Dorset. As well as Sturminster, the aim is to cover the Sturminster Newton Hundred which contains five parishes:
Sturminster Newton (including Bagber, Broad Oak and Puxey)
Hinton St Mary
Margaret Marsh
Okeford Fitzpaine (including Belchalwell and Fiddleford).

It is a spin-off from research into our family, who were originally from the Sturminster area. Information that has been collected is being transcribed and put online for the benefit of other researchers. So far there is:

1841 census
1851 census
1861 census (Sturminster Newton, folios 4 to 52, is complete. Hinton St Mary, folio 56 onwards, is being worked on.)
Births, marriages and deaths
Photos (some from Hinton St Mary and Sturminster Newton so far)
Surname lists

All of these pages are still being updated; information will be added as time allows.

Any queries or offers of interesting information can be mailed to sturminsteroneplacestudy+contact at gmail with the usual dotcom on the end
