These records have been transcribed from microfiches. The originals appear to have been hand written by the Rectors of the day, i.e. Benjamin Preedy (1775-1796), his son James Preedy (1796-1799) and L.J. Vigoureux (1799-1825). They were written on plain paper or parchment and in some cases are somewhat difficult to decipher due to fading of the ink and the style of handwriting. No actual ages are mentioned nor places of Abode given, as in the later Burial Registers. The entries are not numbered and appear in chronological order - almost in the style of a diary.
The order of the words has been arranged so that the Surname appears at the beginning, thus making it possible to arrange them alphabetically.
