INTRODUCTION.



The Registers of Caundle Bishop, from their commencement in
1570 until the year 18 14, are comprised in three volumes.

Vol. I is of parchment, in a limp parchment cover, the leaves,
thirty-six in number, measuring 20 ins. by Giins.

The entries begin on the second leaf with Baptisms, 1570; on the
eighteenth leaf the Marriages begin ; on the twenty-fourth leaf the
Burials, also in 1570, but Burials for 1718-38 are recorded on the twenty-
second and twenty-third leaves.

The greater part of the twenty-sixth leaf has been cut away, but
probably nothing has been lost thereby.

On the verso of the twenty-ninth leaf are records of Benefactions,
which are continued on the thirty-fifth.

The last leaf in the volume contains only the entry of a marriage
not "in the Origenall," dated 1590, written in the scribe's hand, —
and the election of Waywardens in 1685, when the Register was used
to record the entry, as though the usual Waywardens' Book was not
at hand.

It will be noticed that there are several lacunce in the volume,
extending over a considerable period.

The Register, to the middle of 1598, is a transcript.

Vol. II is a narrow folio, bound in rough brown calf, and containing
forty-one leaves of parchment, measuring is^ins. by 7 ins., with two

fourteen, contain Baptisms, 1737-1814; Marriages, 1738-1752, com-
mence on leaf nineteen, and occupy one page only ; and Burials,
