PARISH REGISTERS BEFORE 1812

Scope and Content

The early registers of Duns Tew are not

well preserved: there are no registers

before 1654, and there is a gap between

1695 and 1747 (see below).

However, PAR92/17/MS1/1 below does have

some important information about a

register before 1654. It gives a handful

of entries from it, relating mostly to

members of the Reade and Ravys families

from 1593 to 1650, and notes that the

earliest register was begun in 1575. It

is not known when this register was

lost.
