Current Research

St. James’ Churchyard

The Committee have been keen to undertake a survey of St. James’ Churchyard, and during 2019 this project began in earnest. Our aim is to record the headstones and graves, which we hope may lead, in due course, to further research on former members of the Parish.

Family History

Hartlebury History Society has limited information regarding individuals and families from the Parish. We therefore regret that we may not be able to assist you with your genealogical research. However, we welcome your enquiries and we may be able to forward enquiries to someone who might be able to assist.

Nevertheless, we are always keen to receive details from those who have researched their own family history to enhance our Archive and which can be shared with other researchers. (Please let us know if you do not want your research made available to others).

Previous Research

Hartlebury History Society in partnership with the Worcestershire Historic and Archaeology Service digitised the large, fragile inclosure maps of Hartlebury, Stone, Elmley Lovett, Areley Kings, Lower Mitton and Burlish Common. These huge old maps together with the unwieldy apportionment documents were digitised and transferred onto the County Council Geographical Information System (GIS). The whole project was made possible by a generous grant from the Local Heritage Initiative.
