The Romana Stone
The Romana Stone
[A postcard by kind permission of Steve Poulter a member of the Dorset Post Card Club]

The Romana Stone:- Can currently be seen inside St George’s Church to one side of the tower door. Discovered when the floor of the porch was lowered on 5th February 1908. The Latin inscription may be translated as “For Carinus Roman Citizen, aged 50 years. Rufus and Carina and Avila his children and Romana his wife had this set up.” For this reason it is also known as the Carina Stone. Dorchester was known to Romans as Durnovaria and Carinus was probably a notable citizen.

Notes:-

•  The Bishops Transcripts for the previous period of 1640 to 1663 inclusive have not survived.

•  In the 17 th century “Mr” which is used several times in this Register was a courtesy title for any man of respectable status.

•  Readers are reminded that each year started on 25 th March not the 1 st January [ up until 1752] so January and February Christenings for example will appear at the end of the year

•  The March 2009 update was possible because a better image was obtained from the CLDS which enabled more of the image to be read and some corrections to be made where letters were indistinct
