Parish Register Transcripts
Made with permission of the Incumbent and
Churchwardens from the Original Registers held in the
Gloucestershire Record Office
with missing entries extracted from the Bishops' Transcripts
by William Good
Volume 1 of the Deerhurst registers begins in 1559. From the neatness and consistency of the handwriting it is clear that the Register is a copy of an original register made in 1598. Two Bishops Transcripts survive for this period. That of 1578 includes the weddings and burials for 1578 together with the baptisms of 1577, listed as those of 1578. The last baptism, that of William Harris is missing from the Register. The second Transcript covers the period from 1596 until mid 1599. Curiously the baptisms frequently include the name of the mother which is usually absent from the Register.
Bishops Transcripts also survive for years missing from the Register, 1628, 1638 and 1639. The Transcript for 1628 is headed "A true transiving of the Churwardens of the parishe of Deerhurst of Baptisms, Marriages and Burials for ye yeare 1629." It is one of two transcripts dated 1629. One can be clearly identified as that of 1629 as most entries for that year survive in the Register. The explanation for this two transcripts is that one is the Transcript for 1629 and the other the Transcript submitted in 1629.
