Original Document Heading:-

Copied by the Rev RG Bartelott MA [Note He was the vicar of St Georges Church Fordington between 1906 and 1936] Printed with the permission of the Rev SEV Filleul MA Rector;

The usual parchment Commonwealth Register 12 inches by 8 dating baptisms from 1653 - Burials and Marriages from 1654. The handwriting by the Parish Clerk is very illegible especially the earlier part where spelling is apparently treated as a phonetic perquisite used by the clerk to prevent anyone but himself from deciphering the entries: Vol 2 12 inches by 8: Vol 3 12 inches by 8 : Vol 4 15 inches by 9 .

NOTES:-
1. Comments by the OPC are in [square brackets in italics ] original comments by RG Bartelott are in (rounded brackets)

There are two baptisms in St Peters for an Elizabeth the dau of Wm READ bap 5th Nov 1733 but this seems to be too close to the baptism of William. There is also the baptism of an Anna possibly named after his wife Hannah at St Peters on 15th Oct 1738, perhaps she was called Fanny from an early age to distinguish herr from her mother?
