Pallot's Index had its beginnings in the early 1800s, with the creation of an English firm of heir searchers. Subsequently it became the property of Messrs Pallot and Co. who gave the index its name. Today, Pallot's Index belongs to the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies at Canterbury, Kent. They made it available for consultation at their library or allowed searches for a fee. Recently, Ancestry.com has joined with the Institute to produce the index on CD-ROM and offer it through the Ancestry.com databases online.
At one time, Pallot's Index was much larger. Unfortunately, it suffered severe damage during World War II. What survives is roughly 1.5 million references to marriages and 200,000 references to births. It is the marriages, which are most useful, for London and environs in particular; there are entries for 101 of the 103 ancient parishes. Of the county marriages, there are listings for thirty-eight counties, and for nine of these more than one hundred parishes are represented in the index: Cornwall, Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Leicestershire, Middlesex/London, Norfolk, Nottinghamshire, Shropshire, Somerset, and Yorkshire is close behind with ninety- three. Probably less than half of all parishes have been indexed for the full fifty-seven years, most are 1790 to 1812. [Sherry Irvine, CGRS, FSA (Scot) in the Ancestry Daily News 7th May 2002]

Pallot's Marriage Index for 1780-1837 has excellent coverage of the City of London and good coverage of Middlesex. Like the Pallot's Baptism Index it was started in 1818 and contains entries from registers now destroyed, but this index survives intact. The card index is owned and held at the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies, who sell copies on CD, and it is available online via Ancestry. The original handwritten slips are hard to read and thus many errors have crept into the electronic version. [GENUKI]
