Pitchcombe, Gloucestershire, UK

Transcript taken from :Gloucestershire Notes and Queries., Vol. III, 1887.
Edited by REV. BEAVER H. BLACKER, M. A. Published in 1884. London, England.
The notes below are taken from this volume, and the spelling and grammar are as the original.

According to the Parish Register Abstract, which was " ordered, by the House of Commons, to be printed, 2 April, 1833," the registers of Pitchcombe date from the year 1743 : the information furnished was correct as regards the books which were then forthcoming ; but an earlier volume has been since discovered and replaced in the parish chest. From it the following list of Marriages is taken. It is a complete list for the years given, but some years are evidently omitted in the original : in fact, there is no record whatever for 1730-1-2. The volume contains likewise Baptisms and Burials from 1709 to 1743.
