Miscellaneous entries in the Parish Registers.



This Volume contains the Burials in the earliest of the Howden Register Books-from 1543 to 1659-and the Marriages only in the Second Book-from 1659 to 1702. Book No. 2, bound in vellum, is 21½ in. by 84 in., and contains 150 pages of parchment, with the Registers in double columns.

There are some paper leaves in addition.

No deaths are recorded from May, 1558, to September, 1559.

It may be noted as evidence of a "pestilential disease" in 1579 that there were 53 burials registered in the month of June of that year.

An interesting entry appears on page 124 of the death of " Elizabeth a wich " at Knedlington, 20th August, 1602.

The thanks of the Society are due to the Rev. G. L. M. REES for permission to copy the Second Book. G. E. W,
