PREFACE.



CENTIMENT is a most exacting jade : she took me by the hand
and drew me to the Churchyard, where all was bright with sun and
still, without a breeze. She pointed to the head-stones, nearly sunken,
by moles and ants, disintegrating rain and wintry storm, below the
sods. Their inscriptions* were half-blurred : she bade me copy down
the words, ere they should be all lost. Upon a balmy May day in
1912, I recorded them. But who were these departed people, one or
two of a family here and there ; what did they here, and why are not
their little ones and forbears laid with them ! The Registers would
tell the tale ! She bade me copy down their words as well. Again,
disconnected individuals looked up at me from out the page ; but
many more than had spoken in the Graveyard. Material thickened :
the older people knew their simple histories * right well ' ; and so they
gradually got jotted down, from time to time. Pleasant gossips with
the village dames and their husbands gave way to deeper sources for
research, too dry to mention here. Beyond Monks' Soham I have not
ventured : let other parishes each do its share in the great work of
preserving their Monumental Inscriptions and Registers and the
storied past will then stand forth, a homogeneous whole — a fitting
memorial of those who died that we might live.

THE REGISTERS OF MONKS' SOHAM.



The first mandate for keeping registers of baptisms, marriages
and burials in each parish of England was issued in 1538, by Thomas
Cromwell, Earl of Essex, as Vicar-General ; only some eight hundred
of these very early registers are said to be still extant. The mandate
was repeated in more vigorous terms upon the accession of Queen
Elizabeth in 1558, but even then was so irregularly observed that
in 1597 it was ordained that parchment register-books should be pur-
chased at the expense of each parish ; and at that date, too, " it was
required that the *Churchwardens of every parish should, within a
month after Easter in every year, transmit to the diocesan registry a
transcript of the register of baptisms, marriages, and burials for the
preceding year," to be preserved in the episcopal archives; nor was
this regularly done, for the earliest transcripts at Lincoln are in 1587,
and at Gloucester 1571, but few dioceses have any earlier than 1660.
This is accounted for by the Civil War, well expressed in a Leicester-
shire entry: "A.D. 1641. Know all men, that the reason why little
or nothing is registered from the year 1641 until the year 1649, was
the civil wars between King Charles and his Parliament, which put all
into a confusion till then, and neither minister nor people could quietly
stay at home for one party or the other" ; as we very plainly see, in an
aggravated form, in our own Rector, the Revd. Thomas Rogerson.

Official enquiries were made of all the Parochial clergy early in
Victoria's reign, as to the exact date, condition and number of the
parish registers in their custody, and abstracts of their replies were
piiblished in a Blue Book, "The Parish Register Abstract of 1830,"
in 1833 ; but it is not generally known that part of the returns, which
I have examined, are themselves preserved in the British Museum (Add.
MSS. 9355 et seqq.).

Not many of the original letters of the 1831 returns are preserved
in the British Museum. The volume containing them is lettered

2 THE REGISTERS OF MONKS' SOHAM.

"Parish Registers Extant i83i./Nottingh. Suffolk/4.B./Brit. Mus.
Additional 9358. B. /Press 185.H.". The Parishes are arranged in
alphabetical order under each Hundred. Our official entry is: —

"16. Monk-Soham R. (J. H. Groome Rector) No i Register
Book of Baptisms, Marriages and Burials (in Parchment) commencing
in the year 17 12, ending 1786. No. 2 Register Book of Baptisms and
Burials (half bound) commencing in the year 1786 ending 1790. No
3. Register of Baptisms and Burials (in Parchment) commencing in
the year 1790, ending in the year 181 2. No 4 Register of Marriages
(Parchment) commencing 1754, ending 1786. No 5. Register oi
Marriages (In Calf) commencing 1786, ending 1790. No 6. One Re-
gister of Marriages In Calf, commencing 1790, ending 181 2." — Just
as at present.

The Registers now at Monks' Soham are complete from 17 12 only.
What became of any earlier, if such existed, cannot now be traced ;
the most likely event is that the erratic Cave Beck, who was also rector
of St. Helen's, in Ipswich, kept them in his house, and when he died
they passed with the rest oi his effects as private property to his wife
as legatee, especially as the present Rector of St. Helen's informs me
that the Registers of that church also begin in 1712. Indeed, the
Revd. William Ray's somewhat elaborate heading at that date indi-
cates that he himself had no knowledge of earlier ones. Throughout
discursive notes are extremely rare and aid little in local history, tell-
ing rather (as they should) of a good heart than a perpetuating mind.

Mr. V. B. RedstcHie in his excellent paper (mi the "Records of
the Sudbury Archdeaconry" (Suff. Arch. Soc. 1902 pp. 252-266) gives
a "Calendar of Register Returns, 1580-1640," in which is: —

" Soham, Monks', (Parish Register stated to commence — in the Re-
turn of Parish Registers (Population Abstract), 1831-1559*), 1563
(the earliest date for any parish in this Archdeaconry), 1567, 1569-
1572, 1575-1577, 1580, 1581, 1583, 1584, 1586, 1587, 1591, 1594-
1596* 1599^ 1600-1603, 1606, 1609, 1612, 1613, 1615, 1616, 1619-22.
1624, 1625, 1629-1631, 1635-1638, 1640; and (p. 253). The remain-
ing bundles 1650-1813 are only labelled according to years, as the



* The Diocesan Registrar (Leonard G. Bolingbroke, in lit. 30th March, 1914)
informs me that ' ' the earliest year for which any copies of registers are deposited
here Norwich is 1699 but they were usually only sent here for the Visitation years, the
remaining six years going to the Archdeacon's Registry." The Suffolk archdeaconry
Registrar (Chas. R. Steward in lit.) adds to this, " I regret the copy registers here do
not begin earlier than 17 12."

parishes of the Archdeaconry are for the most part represented in each
bundle." To a copy of this list in the Diocesan Registry at Bury are
added in pencil, as being also extant, the dates 1627 and 161 7. *Davy
and Jermyn also state our Register to begin in 1559, but they further
refer to the years 1565, 1566 and 1639. I asked Mr. Redstone if he
could account for this apparent disparity, and he replied (in lit. i6th
Mar. 1915) : "The register references are to me a mystery." This was,
however, instantly explained when I came to examine the bundles at
Bury in June, 191 7 : the whole belonged solely to Soham in Cambs. !
The same date of initiation is accidental.

No part of our Registers has hitherto been published; "Suffolk
Parish Registers: Marriages," by Phillimore and Blagg, 1910, and F.
A. Crisp's publication of at least eight Suffolk parishes, do not touch
it. For regulations, cf. the 70th canon of 1603, the mass of litera-
ture on the subject is well known,
