FamilySearch adds England, Devon Bishop's Transcripts, 1558-1887

These are indexes and images to selected baptisms, marriages and burials for the county of Devon. there are 256,201 records contained in 93,511 images from the Devon Record Office.

There is also a browse capability for those signed in. Unfortunately the files are listed by LDS Film Number in the range 004376119 to 005884964, not by location(s). They could be in alphabetical order by parish, the first is for Abbots Bickington.

Bishop’s transcripts are copies of parish registers, not as reliable as original registers but useful where those are unavailable for one reason or another.
