Title page: Castle Donington General Baptist Regsister

The following register has been transcribed by Sylvia Murphy, in Australia, who has very kindly donated her work for this website. Thankyou for your generosity, Sylvia!


Register of Births and Deaths belonging to the Congregation of General Baptists at Castle Donington, Leicestershire at the Chapel or Meeting House called Bank Gate Meeting House being of the General Baptist denomination situate in Castle Donington in the County of Leicester founded about the year 1774.

Books sent have been in custody of the Minister ? A Paston? For the time being of the congregation and at one time Ann Pickering of Castle Donington in the County of Leicester widow of a late minister who has kept it since 1828.
Signed: 17 February 1837 by Richard Stocks, Minister.

In responding to the questions to accompany submission of the register, Richard Stocks advises that:
“I am the minister of the General Baptist Chapel situated in the Bank Gate, Castle Donington, Leicestershire and have been in that office eleven years and six months”
“The Chapel and congregation are both still subsisting”.

The background to the questionnaire pages was very dark, either due to coloured paper or discolouration, and it was not possible to make out the responses to other questions.
