Archdiocese of Boston: St. Patrick (Brockton) now searchable

St. Patrick (CC BY-SA (

Today we’ve added six new volumes to Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1920 from St. Patrick in Brockton. This update adds over 23,700 records and over 93,200 names to search.

Prior to 1856, Catholics in Brockton travelled to Randolph for Mass. In 1856, a priest was assigned to Brockton to build a new parish. St. Patrick’s church was dedicated in 1859.

We’d like to thank Sam Sturgis for his help making this parish available online.

The new volumes are listed below:

St. Patrick (Brockton) Baptisms and Marriages, 1856-1885
St. Patrick (Brockton) Baptisms, 1891-1897
St. Patrick (Brockton) Baptisms, 1897-1903
