In the spirit of the holiday season, we have scoured our records to uncover a host of festively named forbears.

We have found, littered across numerous different records sets, a wide range of seasonal names that Santa Claus would certainly be pleased to see on his list. With over 50 Mary Christmases found in our marriage records, a Mr Scrooge born on Christmas day in 1663, and a Mary, Joseph and their baby Jesus living in East London in 1871, there are plenty of  festive examples to  help get you in the mood for the holiday season. Why not search our records to see what seasonal names you can find?
