  • Please note the following gaps in the register. The baptisms and burials appear not to have been recorded; however, in the case of marriages, it may just be the case that none happened in those years
    • No baptisms 1698, 1701 to 1703, 1707, 1713. Two baptisms only 1711. Possible gap from Sept to Dec 1686.
    • No burials 1694, 1698 to 1703, 1707, 1710-1711, 1713, 1726. Possible gaps March to June 1697, June to Oct 1704.
    • No marriages 1686, 1689, 1692, 1694, 1699-1704, 1707, 1709-1711, 1713.
  • In some years, parents’ names aren’t given in the baptism register: 1688, 1695, 1704
  • Entries for 1705 have faded so much on the microfiche as to be almost completely illegible, especially for baptisms. Digital images, if they become available, might be clearer, as perhaps might be consulting the original register, if possible.
