Hilary,

Sorry about the lateness of this reply. Nowhere have I found a Phillip Perrott/Perrot/Parott. Early church records often show the letter "e" as it's mirror image which can look like and thought to be the letter "a", hence Parrott.

Tewkesbury is a fair way from Beverstone where my Perrotts hail from.

Checking the registration of the birth of Perrott's and variations nationwide between the start of civil registration (Sept qtr 1837) and Dec. qtr 1850 via freebmd at
http://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl reveals not one Phillip P. birth; so where did your info.about many come from and are you sure of its provenance?

You may already know what follows but pre-1812 . . . . .

If you go to http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~hughwallis/IGIBatchNumbers/CountyGloucester_(N-Z).htm#T you can find the information about bap's and mar's extracted from parish records (BT's & PR's) countrywide usually up to 1812 but some are later. The Gloucestershire FHS produce a CD having the GLS baptismal index 1812 to 1837.

You will find the free prog Parloc - Parish Locator - very useful. Get it via http://parloc.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/parlocdl.html .

You can use Parloc to find the names of parishes within 3 miles (say) of Tewkesbury (say) then use the Hugh Wallis site to check a surname in each parish found. This can be rewarding sometimes.

Hope this helps.

Regards

Geoff
