 Parish - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The word "parish" is also used more generally to refer to the collection of people who attend a particular church.
In the Catholic Church, each parish has one parish priest (as he is usually called in England, Ireland and Australia, among other places) or "pastor" (as he is called in the United States, among other places), who has responsibility and canonical authority over the parish (the Latin for this post is parochus).
Many parish churches are now "linked" with neighbouring parish churches (served by a single minister.) With the abolition of parishes as a unit of civil government in Scotland, parishes now have a purely ecclesiastical significance in Scotland (and the boundaries may be adjusted by the local Presbytery).

 Introduction: A guide to creating a parish or town council
The civil parish went on to develop into what we call the parish or town council today, which is the principal subject of this document.
The ecclesiastical parish is now an entirely separate body, usually with entirely different borders to their civil counterparts, and with the proliferation of different churches most people today will live in several different such religious parishes.
From 1889 and onwards, when civil parishes were officially created, a patchwork of legislation has developed the parish council and the powers it enjoys.

 English Counties, Parish, etc. for Genealogists   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
Most parishes were originally the area served by a local church, and were (still are in many cases) synonymous with the village in which the church was situated, although outlying dwellings and farms away from the main village were normally included.
Genealogists need to be aware that it is these ecclesiastical parishes, not the civil parishes, which maintain the registers of baptisms, marriages and burials, although in most cases the surviving older registers have been deposited with the local county record office.
The parish may have the same name as just one village, in which case it would still be parish, county, country, but with the word "parish" after the parish name to make it clear that the whole parish, not just the village, was referred to.

 Felbridge History Group - Civil Parish
The majority of the village of Felbridge formed part of the South Ward of the civil parish of Godstone, being separated from the ecclesiastical and civil parishes of Godstone by a strip of land forming part of the parish of Horne, and for this reason, Felbridge was known as ‘Godstone (Detached)’.
In 1953, the definitive area of the civil parish of Felbridge was bounded on the North by West Park Road and Newchapel Road, on the East by the existing Tandridge boundary and to the West by the existing Horne boundary, and fell under the jurisdiction of Godstone Rural District Council, and ultimately, Surrey County Council.
It is interesting to note that the original and amended boundaries of the civil parish of Felbridge differ from the boundary of the ecclesiastical parish of Felbridge, and that the boundaries of both parishes differ from the original boundary of the estate of Felbridge, which was created by Edward Evelyn in 1748.

The Church respects the civil law and provides for the civil incorporation of parishes and dioceses and other Church institutions and associations in order that the civil law be observed and the fitting protections of the civil law be assured.
