Family History

An overview of the sources held at Lambeth Palace Library for family history and genealogy, although the Library is unlikely to be the best starting point for such research.

The Library holds a small amount of marriage records, principally bonds and allegations relating to those married by licence issued under the Archbishop of Canterbury, and the Library has produced a separate guide to this material.

Additional information can be found at the Building on History project.


Please note that only rarely do the Library's records refer to specific individuals employed at Lambeth Palace.
