1. Abbreviated given names have been expanded (e.g. Thos: to Thomas) but otherwise the spellings of personal & place names have been reproduced as in the original registers.
2. Old style dates have been retained before 1752, but with the New Year beginning on January 1st.
3. There is a major problem from about 1769 to 1773 with confused dating in the register. The Bishops transcripts are only available for 1769/70, but using these and the separate marriage register (which duplicates entries in the main register) a best guess has been made at the correct dates. However, the dates in this period should be used with caution and may be 1 or 2 years out.
4. A contemporary (churchwarden's?) copy of the register survives for 1791-1799. For many of the births a father is recorded who does not appear in the main register. These have been added in the comments column.
