Description With list of rectors and curates, 1813-1862.
There is a gap in deposited burial register from 1663-1695 in the original register. On close examination the original register has faint entry near the front about a new incumbent who arrived in the parish in 1667. The register is generally very untidy, with gaps left for no obvious reason, and the incumbent from 1667 to 1695 apparently failed to make any entries during his time in office. Certainly lack of space in the register cannot have been a reason, as there are, if anything, more pages that are blank than have writing.
