St George's Church Fordington © Michael Russell FIPD


Notes:-

The original registers for this period exist in the Dorset Registry Office & there appear to be some original transcription errors between those records and the Bishops Transcripts transcribed here which were done in some cases several years later by the vicar. The originals need to be transcribed, any additional information added including missing years, and corrections made where appropriate.

There is an added problem in that one image 4205261_00018 has been filmed out of sequence as it has no heading and the researchers clearly did not know at that time to which year it related. These entries have been moved from 1761 to their correct position in 1764 as annotated below. At the request of the Church of Latter day Saints I have added image ref numbers from the discs they sent to us so that entries can be more easily identified.

In the early years the records are badly damaged and difficult to read and where this is the case I have tried to verify names against the marriage or other registers to improve accuracy and cross referenced. They are also composite registers with a column down one side indicating whether the entry is a baptism, marriage or burial. Where this edge is missing it is not always possible to be sure whether an entry is a baptism or a burial. Baptisms are also in the IGI and were taken from original registers so I have added any additional information available and annotated accordingly.

In the late 1790's there was a large influx of Militia men to the Fordington Barracks which led to many marriages to local girls. See my comments under “Overseers Accounts 1798-1802 regarding the Militia and the rebellion of 1798. Fordington High Street was also a continuation from the lower end of Dorchester and many couples married in one and raised families in the other. In transcribing these registers I became aware of many such associations and have therefore added comment where appropriate.

I have also now [August 2010] checked against the National Burial Index which was taken from original registers not the BT's and re checked images where there are differences between our transcriptions. The originals still need to be checked but this process has helped improve accuracy of my own transcriptions and correctly identify whether a baptisms or a burial and also provide names where they are illegible in the BT return. Where because of 10 years research I know the family name and it is clearly incorrect in the NBI transcription I have said it is incorrect but it is always best to check originals where you can and in no way implies a criticism of previous transcriptions as the process is at times extremely difficult and we are all doing the best we can.

    [New page - Note no heading to indicate the year - clearly filmed out of sequence as dates between images 17 and 19 run consecutively - The National Burial Index has these burials as 1764 and was transcribed from the original registers not the Bishops Transcripts so is more likely to be correct. There is also a gap in the burials for 1764 into which these entries fit neatly. Also see comments on burial of Caleb Clothey [Clothyer] below which shows marriage and baptism after 1761 - I have therefore moved all these entries from 1761 to 1764 ]

Novr 18th Daniel DOWLING

Novr 21st John Baseborn S [Son] of Tamazin BRINE

Novr 25th Richard S [Son] of Joseph & Esther BARTLETT

    [Note the Overseers accounts show the death of a child called Tamazine STICKLAND. They refer to the child being in a dying condition in Oct 1782. The last poor relief paid for the child was on 26 Nov 1782- shown as “Dead” the following week. They pay for the burial but no entry in parish burial register.

    Tamazine,  also referred to as Tamsy or Thomasine BRINE married a Richard Stickland from Cerne Abbas on 19 Jan 1780 in Fordington.  When they requested poor relief the Overseers of Fordington issued a removal order on 3rd December 1781 for “Richard Stickland & his wife Thomazin” back to Cerne Abbas. This was because Richards place of Settlement was Cerne Abbas as he was baptised there the son of John Stickland 27 December 1756. No mention of a child at that stage. A wife took on her husbands place of settlement on marriage and a child also had the same as his father. This makes what followed surprising.

Either the removal order was not put into effect [Richard may have found work in Fordington for example] or they returned before June 1782 when Tamazine starts to be given relief for the child which continues each week until death referred to above. I can only assume that this was out of compassion by the Overseers. She would  have been well known to them as she lived there prior to marriage and they were clearly in distress in June when they buy her 2 shifts and a petticote and award 1 shilling a week support, both  for the child. This suggests to me that the female child was actually born in Fordington but does not appear to have been baptised there.

After burial they both seem to have returned to Cerne Abbas as Tamsey Stickland is buried there on 13th March 1785. Richard however lives to the ripe old age of 73 before he too is buried there on 12 August 1829].
