Volume later used as a register of communicants, 1842-1864, and confirmations, 1840-1860, with names of godfathers and godmothers, nd.
Other memoranda include:

As you can see, there is a note of the list of communicants and confirmations which included the names of godparents. I have checked the original, and the back pages are all like this, with long lists - each name with a consecutive running number. The first pages are titled as communicants, with new communicants (ie: confirmations) marked with an asterisk, while some pages are specifically titled as confirmations, occurring either at Stone or Cheadle. I do not know what prompted such lists to be recorded. On the page titled Godfathers and Godmothers, there is a pencil note underneath saying “Cardinal Pole directed Registers of Godfathers and Godmothers to be kept.” This seems a bit strange for an Anglican register.
