1741, under the ministry of the Rev. James Fisher. In
that year a Register was opened, and continued till 10th
September, 1783, when it was given up in consequence
of a Bill having been brought into Parliament, by Lord
John Cavendish, then Chancellor of the Exchequer, for
laying on a Tax on the Registration of Baptisms, &c. In
1751, the ilev. John Falconer, Minister of the Episcopal
Chapel, opened a separate Register, which is still con-
tinued. Since 17f).3, a private Register has also been kept
by the Roman Catholic Clergyman of this City.
