Howden Registers - Miscellaneous 2.


Transcription of the Howden Registers - Miscellaneous 2.

Miscellaneous entries in the Parish Registers.

Herein are printed the contents of the 4th, 5th, and 6th Book of the Howden Registers. The 4th Book contains 42 paper leaves, 16½ inches by 6 inches, in a brown paper covering. Some of the leaves are much frayed. It records Baptisms, Burials, and Marriages to 1746.

Book No. 5 measures 15¾ inches by 8 5/8 inches, is bound in cloth, and contains 102 parchment leaves, of which 39 are blank. The Binding is torn in several places. The Book contains the Baptisms and Burials at Howden from 1746 to 1775, and the Baptisms and Burials at Barmby on the Marsh and Laxton from 1763 to 1 778 ; also the Marriages at Howden from 1746 to June, 1754.

Book No. 6 contains printed forms for Banns and Marriages, and 48 leaves, 16½ inches by 10¾ inches, were utilized. The binding was in a parchment cover, which is now quite loose, so that some of the Registers may have been lost. They embrace the period from 1754 to June, 1770.

The thanks of the Society were due to the Reverend G. M. L. Rees, the late Vicar of Howden, for permission to copy these Registers.
