Known Issue England Vital Records Index (FamilySearch Historical Records) for the Bishop's Transcripts have been found to contain Baptismal entries for Englishcombe, Somerset events due to incorrect place data entry in the older index. Exton has no Online Parish Clerk but Englishcombe, Somerset events can be searched online.

Older indexes in this collection can contain place data entry errors as there are many parishes on the microfilm of the Bishop's transcripts and researchers should be wary of indexing errors.
