PRIVATELY PRINTED FOR THE
SHROPSHIRE PARISH REGISTER SOCIETY.
1909.

Note for the Reader.

The eleventh volume of the Registers of the Diocese of Hereford, now completed, consists of the long and important Register of Worthen. It is of great interest, because of the extent of the parish, and the many families of position that occur in this Register, and also by reason of the early date at which it begins.

The Register is, as has been the plan adopted throughout, printed in abstract form, except the first forty years which have been printed in full.

The following abbreviations have been adopted:-

b. ... bachelor.sep. ... sepultus (buried).
sp. ... spinster.s. ... son.
wid. ... widow.d. ... daughter.
widr. ... widower.w. ... wife.
p. ... parish.lic. ... license.
wit. ... witnesses.gent. ... gentleman.
bap. ... baptized.esq. ... esquire.
chr. ... christened.clk. ... clerk.
mar. ... married.co. ... county.
bur. ... buried.dioc. ... diocese.
ch.w. ... churchwardens.f. ... filius or filia (son or daughter).
ux. ... uxor (wife).

For the transcript of this Register the Society is indebted to the Rev. C. H. Drinkwatcr and Mr. T. R. Horton, and for collating to the Revds. C. H. Drinkwater and W. G. D. Fletcher and Miss Auden; also to Mr. James Whitaker for a generous donation towards the cost of printing.

The word "pauper" affixed to many names does not necessarily imply poverty, but that the duty imposed by Act of Parliament on the registration of baptisms, marriages, and burials was not paid.

W.G.D.F.
