Note for the Reader.

The present is the eighth volume of the Registers of the Diocese of Hereford which has been completed by the Shropshire Parish Register Society. It consists of the Registers of Chirbury and Church Stretton.

In this volume, as has been the plan adopted by the Council throughout, the Registers are not printed verbatim et literatim, but in abstract form, all mere verbiage being omitted, though every fact is recorded, and all occurrences, remarkable events, terriers, &c., given in the Registers are 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).

A capital letter after "of" or "p." denotes the parish whose particular Register is being printed; thus "of C."="of Chirbury," and "p. C.S."="parish of Church Stretton."

Thanks are due to the Rev. Prebendary Burd and the Rev. A. Roberts for leave to print the Registers, and for facilities afforded in their transcription and collation. Also to Mr. T.R. Horton, Miss Auden, Miss A.M. Auden, Mrs. R.B. Morris, and the Rev. F.A. Allen, for transcribing and collating the Registers.

Since the Church Stretton Register has been in type, Mrs. Seymour, the generous donor of this and other Registers to the Society, and sister of the late Mr. Stanley Leighton, M.P. has passed away.
