THE REGISTERS OF PATRINGTON.
PREFACE.
1570 - 1731.
EDITED BY THE LATE
REV. HENRY EDWARD MADDOCK, M.A.,
Rector of Patrington, and Canon of York.
1900.
PREFACE.

THE Patrington Registers, as here printed, are contained in two Volumes, the first of which is on the whole in very good condition, being strongly bound in vellum, and measures 19 inches in length by 71 inches in breadth. It contains 168 pages of parchment, on which entries are written of Marriages, Baptisms, or Births, and Burials, with 12 pages containing an undated Terrier, and notices of the erection or transfer of pews or seats in the Church.

The entries commence with a Transcript, the writing of which is somewhat faded, of the Marriages, Christenings, and Burials from 1570 to 1598, each page of which is signed by the Vicar and Curate, and four Churchwardens. The entries in this Transcript are for the most part in Latin, but English words are often inserted, as for example the usual form of a marriage entry is Edward Warde and Agnes Jackson nupti fuere." In the entries of Christenings the form "babtizatus" is universally employed. In the Burial entries the Christian name and sex or condition of the person buried is frequently given in English, while the remainder of the entry is in Latin, e.g., " Isabel Tock singlewoman mort obiit ;" " Richard Hewyt cordiner mort obiit." In 1599 entries commence apparently in the handwriting of the Rector, Humfray Hall, whose Incumbency extended from 1581 to 1626, and whose signature repeatedly occurs, together with the signatures or marks of his Churchwardens, as attesting the correctness of the entries. His entries commence in Latin, " Ellin Pinckney vidua mortua et sepulta est," but very soon are given entirely in English. In the early part of the Incumbency of Francis Corbett, who was Rector from 1627 to 1651, the entries are in English and are written in a very illiterate handwriting, but from 1634 to 1651 they are written in scholarly Latin, perhaps by the Rector himself, with the addition in the case of most of the Burials of some title to designate the condition or profession of the person buried. In this part of the Register we come across unusual terms such as rotifex (wheel- wright), chirothicarius (glover), faber lignarius (carpenter), pictor (painter), famulus sacrorum (parish clerk), senex innupta (old maid) ; and notes with regard to the number carried off, or supposed to be carried off, by the plague.

From 1653 to 1660 the Registers were by Act of Parliament taken out of the custody of the Clergy, and in Patrington were placed successively in the charge of most shamefully illiterate men, John Shieldes and William Story, who were in succession elected "Regesters" of the Parish, and authorised to publish Banns of Marriage at the Market Cross on three successive market days ; or in the Parish Church on three successive Sundays. The spelling of the names and designations of the persons, with regard to whom entries are made, is during this period outrageous, including such forms as " singellwomon, " carpinter," " saurwant," " Margrit," " Marmaduck."

After the Restoration in 1660 the Registers were beautifully kept till the close of 1662, but in 1663 a worse scribe than either of the " Regesters " was employed by Samuel Proud, Rector from 1656 to 1682. In this part of the Register Susanna becomes "Seuana," Jane is written " Jann," Grace is transformed into " Grayse," and the degrees of filial relationship are written respectively " sun," " doughter," and buried becomes " beuried." Samuel Proud's successor, Edward Saunder (Rector March 8th, 1682, to November, 1685), is very severe on the shortcomings of his predecessor. Among the Burials occurs the note-" There is a great neglect in the Register from the year 1676 to the year 1683, caused through the carelessness of the Incumbent and his Curate." During the short Incumbency of Edward Saunder, who is entered as buried on November 30th, 1683, and described as "Fidelis hujus Ecclesiae Pastor," the entries are written in Latin in a scholarly hand, and for the first time notes are made of sums paid as " Mortuaries."

His successor was John Pighells, for whose Incumbency the entries occur in duplicate. The originals are written in a small and irregular handwriting, and are mainly found in a second parchment volume of 44 pages, measuring 15¾ inches by 61 inches, which is entirely confined to the Incumbency of John Pighells and contains entries of Marriages, Baptisms, Burials, and Transfers of Pews in the Church, with little regard to their sequence and due order. These are transcribed in a hold, clerkly, professional handwriting in Vol. I. with the introductory note-" Hic Incipit Jo Pighells hujus Ecclesiae Rector." The entries, however, were carelessly made, and many difficulties in this Transcript are cleared up by a reference to the original entry. The Transcript continues to 1731, including the greater part of the Incumbency of Henry Hopkinson, who was Rector from 1725 to 1734.

The confused arrangement of the entries in both volumes of the Registers has not been followed in this reprint, but the entries have been given in their chronological order, under the three headings of Marriages, Baptisms, and Burials. To these entries there has been added the undated Terrier, and also notices, signed in most cases by the Rector for the time being, of the " erection " and transfers of the pews or seats in the Parish Church. The transcript, from which this reprint has been made, was written by Mr. J. G. Hall, Town Councillor of Hull, and most carefully revised by Dr. Collins, to both of whom the thanks of the Editor are due. H. E. M.

The above introduction had been written, but not printed, when Canon Maddock's own name had to be added to the roll of those inscribed in the Burial Registers of Patrington. Happily the work which he had set himself to accomplish was nearly finished, and it only remained to see through the press the final pages, His body rests beneath the shadow of the noble Church which by his constant care through sixteen years has been restored and beautified. Its earliest written records are by his diligence herein preserved. N T M
