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)
2. Readers are reminded that the year started on 25 March not 1st January until the year 1752
3. Checked against the IGI, any differences commented upon.
4. This transcription is valuable as it gives grooms and brides originating parishes where different from "All Saints Dorchester" and in a few cases a soldiers Regiment which are not recorded on the IGI

47. Samuel SLADE of the parish of St Peters [in Dorchester] & Edith TUCKER otp were married by licence 4 Mar 1763 by me Rev. Seth Bancks Rector (their signatures) witnesses Thomas Meech and Samuel Hobbs (PR)

48. George BLANDEMOUR [BLANDAMER] otp & Elizabeth HARBIN otp were married by Banns 17 April 1763 by me Rev. Seth Bancks Rector (their marks) witnesses Thomas Paul and Samuel Hobbs (PR)

    [Note:- George BLANDAMER (1717-1806) the Elder of All Saints Parish was found fit to serve in the Militia in 1758 when the listing shows that he was deaf. He married here when he was aged 46 to Elizabeth HARBIN (1741-1798) the daughter of Henry HARBIN by his wife Ann TREVIS. Elizabeth was baptised at All Saints Church in Dorchester on 21st July 1741, so she was only 22 years old. Elizabeth was buried at St Peters Church in Dorchester on 4th April 1798 and was joined by her husband on 18th Dec 1806. He seems to have prospered after marriage as he is assessed for land tax, first appearing in 1781 in All Saints Parish as being the occupant of property owned by the Rev Mr Bryer and paying each year up to 1785. He appears again in 1804 and the following year in a property now owned by T.G.Read. The family appear to have remained in the house after his death and paid the tax as entries refer to the 'late Mr George Blandemore the last return being dated in the year 1818.
    The following is a listing of children known to have resulted from the marriage but between Elizabeth their 1st child and John their 2nd I think they had another son named George BLANDAMER (1765/6-1847) after his father as would have been traditional. I have not however been able to locate his baptism. Follow link for more information. We know that this George was born late 1765 or early 1766 from his age at death, but perhaps more importantly from the 1891 Census we know that his son also called George Blandamer (1809-1891) was deaf, as his grandfather had been and his son Joseph (1836-1894) was deaf, and Joseph had two deaf children Fanny born 1853 and Joseph born 1866. Joseph's brother Isaac is recorded in the 1901 census as being partially deaf and he also married a woman, Hannah Gawler who had been deaf from early childhood. I think this points to a genetic disorder called osclerosis which I believe George (1717-1806) passed through his son George (1765/6-1847) to his son George (1809-1891) and onto Joseph (1836-1894)
    Other children from this marriage:- (1) Elizabeth (b.1764) Bap ASt 29th Dec 1764, she married Thomas PAUL at ASt's 31st May 1792 (2) John (1769-1780) bap ASt 24th Jan 1769 buried at St Peters Church Dorchester on 24th Dec 1780 (3)Tomazen [Tomasine] (1771-1834) bap ASt 23 May 1771 remained a spinster and buried at St Georges Church Fordington on 27th July 1834 aged 63 (4) Robert (1774-1792) bap ASt 26th Dec 1774 and buried St Peters Church Dorchester on 25 Mar 1792 (5) Ann (b.1777) bap ASt 26th Dec 1777. She may have remained a spinster and been the witness at her bother John's wedding in 1812 but I have found no other reference to her.

1777

John MORGAN of the parish of Fordington & Dorothy SPRATT otp were married by Licence 10 July 1777 by me Rev Thomas Bryer Rector (their signatures) witnesses John Randall & Ann Spratt (PR)

    [Note:- John MORGAN (c1753-1816) was Churchwarden of St Georges church in Fordington (recorded in the parish registers during the years 1782; 1788; 1797; and 1799) He is almost certainly the son of Mr John MORGAN of Fordington by his wife Jane who was buried at Stinsford on 30th May 1776. See Transcription of his Will which leaves everything to his son John. John lived with his wife Dorothy in his home parish of Fordington and they had the following 9? children baptised in St Georges Church:- (1) John bap 5th Nov 1778, it is assumed that he died an infant prior to 1781 although I have not been able to locate a burial. (2) Mary Ann bap 3rd Oct 1781 & buried at Stinsford 16th May 1795 (3) John bap 3rd Oct 1781. He married twice the first time to Sarah SAMWAYS from Mucleford on 25th Feb 1811 at St Georges church in Fordington. See marriage for more information about him. (4) Harriet bap 5th Oct 1784 (5) Elizabeth bap 12th Dec 1788 and buried unmarried at Stinsford 13th Sep 1813 aged 27 so born circa 1786 (6) William bap 12th Dec 1788 (7) Susannah bap 10th Nov 1797 and buried at Stinsford 21st April 1824 aged 33 so born circa 1791 (8) Henry bap 10th Nov 1797 - Although several children were baptised together it is clear that some were born several years earlier. (9) There is also a burial recorded at Stinsford for an "Ann daughter of John & Dorothy Morgan of Fordington" on 3rd August 1790 so they may well have had at least 9 children - John MORGAN Senior was also buried at Stinsford on 29th Feb 1816 when his age was given as being 63 followed by his widow Dorothy MORGAN nee SPRATT (1753-1834) on 1st May 1834 when she was 81. As Stinford burial registers constantly refer to members of the family as being from Fordington it seems likely that burials were in a family plot at Stinsford]
