    Civil registration did not begin until Sep quarter 1837, so there is nothing at the General Record Office before that date. Have you tried familysearch.org for transcribed parish records ? Perhaps someone else knows whether Herefordshire has an online parish clerk, but I don't find one in my searching.
    Do you know anything more so that someone with an Ancestry [for instance] subscription can help ?

    Have a look at the Herefordshire Records Office entry in the ARCHON directory. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on Access to Archives. There is a search facility.

    If you are not successful, then it may be worth an email to the RO itself.

    Hi dalek39,
    Unfortunately no marriage as early as 1755 is going to give the names of parents of bride & groom. As ET has already stated BMD did not begin in England & Wales until 1837. Though 1755 just comes after the 1754 Marriage Act I'm afraid parents will not be listed in parish registers either. What you will find after 1754 in parish registers is parish of abode for both bride & groom plus witnesses. Pre 1754 all that will be given is names of the couple with occasional mention if one is not from the parish.
    With regards to Colwell, this parish is right on the border with Worcestershire so you may need to extend your research into that county too. Worcestershire records will not be generally held at the Herefordshire County Record Office.

    Hi Dalek39,

    Are you sure the date is correct? I have the Herefordshire Marriage Index and according to that there is no HANKINS marriage in Colwell in 1755. There are however the following marriages at Colwell:

    15 December 1745 Anne HANKINS & William ALLEN
    9 May 1757 Mary HANKINS & Richard HILL
    21 October 1775 Nancy HANKINS & Richard KING
    26 April 1786 Caleb HANKINS & Mary HARCOURT of Ledbury

    I'm as sure as I can be Janet....I found their marriage date on a few sites, if you want me to list them I will have to check my records.... I do have the others you stated, I think they may be of the same family...but its only guessing at this stage. I think I have done pretty well to get this far, but I just thought if I got the parents name..I could close the book so to speak....anyway...many thanks for your help...

    Hi,
    It is actually COLWALL not COLWELL but I did find Anne 1745, Nancy 1775 & Caleb 1786 marriages in Colwall. There is as you say Dalek39 also the marriage of William Hankins & Mary Daffy 10 Feb 1755 in Colwall.
