The records for the year 1640 are now archived in the Parliamentary Archives at
the Palace of Westminster, London. [Click] [Note: These are external links]
The original church records for this parish at this time are missing.
This is the only record of these BMDs for 1640-1641, (and they use the Julian Calendar
with 25 March being the start of each new year.)
