Information for this index has been extracted from various sources over a period of some 40 years. Where the original record has been consulted the exact entry has been given. However, it has been necessary to condense some of the longer entries (Census records for example) and in all instances researchers should check the original source as no guarantee is given for any possible error during the transcription and typing process of the index.

When research on this name commenced, many of the original records were held in the individual parish. The source reference, therefore, merely indicates the record and does not state where it is held at the present time. It is stressed that this index is only  an aid to research and the original record SHOULD ALWAYS BE EXAMINED. Experience over many years has shown that significant differences can occur between parish register and bishops transcript entries and between original records and copies. 

Much research was carried out on the O/Usborne families in the 1920s by Major Thomas Masters Usborne of Chilham, Kent and this index is dedicated to his  memory and that of his daughter Anne, who allowed  me to copy his work.
