The existing church of St Michael in Farnley is comparativelynew, though built on the site of older chapels. Baptisms and burials were
carried out here from an early period; some memorial stones in the church
yard date back to the 17th century. Known records date back to 1624.
Earlier records appear to be with Leeds Parish registers and the earliest independent Farnley Baptisms appear to be loose leafs at the back of the register that starts in 1793. The loose pages cover 1791-1792 and are so faded that the dates are invisible, though the names have been re-inked. The entries with missing dates can be found on the IGI.
Entries with the name Anna are most likely to be Hannah
