In 1883 the vicar of Kingsthorpe created a list of old documents, and excerpts from some, in a book called:
Kingsthorpiana or Researches in a Church Chest
I have extracted all mentions of the name Green from this book. I have also included early Greens from the Kingsthorpe parish register.

If anyone has any more information on early Greens in Kingsthorpe I would be very grateful if they could contact me.
