The original Parish Registers (PR) for this period exist in the Dorset Registry Office & there are some transcription errors between those records and the Bishops Transcripts transcribed here which were done in some cases several years later. Some names are also spelt differently between the registers and in a few cases more information has been given in the Bishops Transcripts than originally recorded

In the early years the BT records are badly damaged and difficult to read and in some areas the Parish Registers are badly faded with some entries illegible. Both the original and Bishops Transcripts are composite returns with the left side containing a column stating whether the entry was a baptism, marriage or burial. In many cases the edge has been damaged or disappeared. It is only by viewing both returns and checking back to marriage names that it has been possible to end up with what is now a complete record.

William son of William & Mary BISHOP March 7 [PR simply has William BISHOP buried 7th March 1756?]

William BRIERburied March 22 (PR)

Christian PITFIELD buried March 29 (PR) [Note:- Of unknown origin but likely to be the burial of another child of Charles PITFIELD ( 1723-1801) and his wife Mary Bishop possibly baptised during 1752 when we appear to have some missing baptisms because of the change over for the start of the year to the Julian calendar. They had a habit of renaming the children who had died in infancy. eg they had a son Charles bap 8th Feb 1748/9 who was buried 14th July 1749. They renamed the next child born Charles. I think they then had a girl they named Christian born in 1752 who died here in 1756. Their next child was a boy they named Sebastian & was born in 1754 but died in 1756 and the next child was renamed Sebastian. The next child after that was a girl and named Christian in 1761.]
