Title: Register of baptisms, marriages and burials

[Baptisms, 1580-1730; marriages, 1562-1730; burials, 1562-1726. The baptisms also originally began before 1568 as can be seen from a fragment of a page remaining. No marriages are recorded 1643-1653. A note before the burials for 1678 states that all burials after this date were in woollen. All entries up to 1610 appear to have been copied from an earlier register. Entries concerning the marriages of dissenters, 1700 and 1730, follow the marriages section. Births, 1697-1706 and 1728, also recorded on this page, possibly those of dissenters' children. Two later entries, for 1736 and 1753, also appear on this page. These entries do not duplicate any entries in this and one only in the next register. Copy of certificate issued by the Rector of Widford, 1617, stating that John Duxford and Agnes Perry were married in his parish in that year, inside front cover]
