The earliest registers are in two volumes of Composite Registers from 1558. The entries for baptisms during the Commonwealth are maintained although reduced in volume at a time when the population was increasing. An entry on the fly leaf refers to the revolutionary period of the Commonwealth when Bishop Warner was turned out of his see (of Rochester). The manorial rights were sold 1 March 1647 to Augustine Skinner although there is documentary evidence that Government force was required to overcome opposition to his occupancy of the episcopal palace. He was however installed as Lord of the Manor and his entry in the fly leaf appoints Henry Arnold Clerke "being elected at a Vestry to be Parish Minister...he took oath before me on 11 October 1653". Skynner held possession until the Restoration when bishops were reinstated to their see,palaces and endowments. In 1663 Richard Marsh replaces Henry Arnold as rector for the parish. The registers reflect also burials of plague victims. In 1630 the Bishop was turned out of his palace by plague in the town the burial register recording 62 burials where typically in that decade an annual average is 30. The year of the Great Plague 1665 plague victims are recorded throughout summer, autumn and winter. Bromley had from the 1630's a Pest House and was directly opposite the gates of Bromley College within Plague Field on the side of the London Road.It remained in existence until the 1790's.
