NOTES:- For this period the Bishops Transcripts are intermittent and often in very poor condition. Most were written in secretary hand where the formation of letters was very different from that used today. Some are also written in Medieval Latin. For those consulting original documents please note:-

Abbreviation is common. some examples used here are:- eld: for elder or sen: for senior. In Latin “i” and “j” are interchangeable so you will also see iun: as well as jun: as an abbreviated version of junior. Sepult: for sepultus or sepultuserat meaning buried. wid: for widow

An example of gender specific abbreviation often used in this text is the word Johes, abbreviated from Johannes meaning John. In the IGI these names have sometimes been incorrectly recorded as female which would be Johan for Johanna. Willmus for Willelmus meaning William.

Jacobus or Jacobi in Latin can be translated as Jacob or James - the latter is most common

Numbers are often written in Roman numerals and in faded or damaged documents are particularly difficult to get right - here the vicar has sometimes followed roman numerals with a “ th” as in xxvth [25th]. He has also used “ iiii” meaning 4th rather than “ iv”.

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