  • At the beginning of the register for 1770 is a note from the incumbent which states that the due to a fire the registers are deficient from 1761 to 1769. This register included all baptisms marriages and burials. Other than those years I found no other entries missing although the registers preceeding this date are heavily damaged and many entries no longer legible. Rob Burns [2010]
