The following abbreviations have been adopted:-

b.- bachelor.gent.- gentleman.
bap.- baptised.lic.- license.
chr.- christened.mar.- married.
ch. w.- churchwardens.p. (or par.)- parish.
clk.- clerk.s.- son.

Thanks are due to the Revs. R. Steavenson and J.A. Sharrock for leave to print tbe Registers, and for facilities afforded in their transcription and collation. Also to the Rev. C.H. Drinkwater, Mr. T.R. Horton, and the Rev. J.A. Sharrock for transcribing and collating.

Since the Hodnet Register was printed. Mr. A. Heber-Percy, the lord of the manor and patron of Hodnet, and a member of the Council of the Society, who most generously contributed towards the cost of printing the Register of his parish, passed away on May 12th to the great regret of all who knew him.
