The Online Parish Clerk (Genealogy) for Stoke Climsland is Di Gibbs, who can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information can be found at COCP (the Cornwall Online Census Project), which is complete for 1841 to 1891 and has been verified, FreeCen at Rootsweb, which has a very good search engine and information from COCP, as well as GenUKI, which has more reference information and alternative resources.
Baptism, Marriage and Burial Registers from 1538 have survived, but unfortunately the earliest are in very poor condition. Look ups are available. For further Parish Register information and other resources, please see our online searchable database (C-PROP), which is updated frequently, and GenUKI. The C-PROP parish coverage page is here.
I have various dates available, which I am happy to search on request. For other information, see the Cornwall Towns & Parishes link on GenUKI or visit the University of Leicester's Historical Directory website.
Indentures and Other Legal Documents:
various C16 and C17 lists available, which I am happy to search on request.
The Parish Church website has a section on history, including a plan of the burial ground and an alphabetical list of grave records, see this link.
The North Cornwall District Council has a document online concerning the current Conservation Area status of Stoke Climsland. It contains some interesting historical details too.
