St Georges Church Fordington


•  The Bishops Transcripts for the previous period of 1640 to 1663 inclusive have not survived.

•  In the 17 th century “Mr” which is used several times in this Register was a courtesy title for any man of respectable status.

•  Readers are reminded that each year started on 25 th March not the 1st January [ up until 1752] so January and February Christenings for example will appear at the end of the year

•  The March 2009 update was possible because a better image was obtained from the CLDS which enabled more of the image to be read and some corrections to be made where letters were indistinct
