- Provenance: The parish registers of baptisms, marriages, banns and burials, which commence in 1584, were among the records deposited by the Vicar and Parochial Church Council in 1956 (P7/1-3). Two further deposits of mainly 20th century papers (but including some earlier faculties and deeds) relating to church property, fabric and services were received in 1968 (P7/2/4-6 and P7/4-9).
These additional accumulations were deposited by the Rev D Landreth, Vicar, St Mary Magdalene Church, Richmond and by Mr A Calvert Smith and Messrs Calvert Smith and Sutcliffe, solicitors, in July 1968. As each collection complements the other, they have been catalogued as one. The documents deposited by Mr A Calver Smith and Messrs Calvert Smith and Sutcliffe comprised P7/2/5-6, P7/4/14-19, 20 part, 22-23, 24a, P7/5/1-4, 8 part, 13, 14 part, 15-19, 20 part, 21-28, 30-33, P7/6/1-2, P7/7/13-19, 22.
