The following transcription are NOT available on the LDS IGI site but you can search them here by clicking on the year. The transcripts of the baptisms 1773-1812  are taken from those transcripts made by the local historian Bawden, or from the images of the registers at the time. Church Law changed the method of recording baptisms in 1812: thereafter the father's occupation was included, as well as the family dwelling place.
