Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made Heaven and Earth."

The Register.

A volume in modern vellum back, with green cloth sides, 12 3/4 inches tall, by 8 1/2 inches broad. In the General Register Office, Somerset House, London, being No. 35, Shropshire Non-Parochial Registers. It contains:-

(a) One sheet, closely written on both sides, of Baptisms, 1692-1706, in the hand-writing of Rev. James Owen.

(b) A list of ministers, &c., written by Rev. Richard Astley.

(c) Two leaves, closely written on both sides, of Baptisms 1727- 1741, " taken out of a book of Mr. Dobson's by me, Job Orton, Salop."

(d) Three leaves (two written on both sides) of Baptisms, 1733- 1741, by Charles Berry, and ten entries, 1741-1743, of Baptisms by Mr. Holland (Wem), Jos. Davis, and Mr. Allen.

(e) A transcript (partial) of c and d.

(f) Baptisms from 1741 to 1786.

(g) Ditto, from 1783 to 1836.

In sending this register to the Commissioners On 12 Jan., 1837, Rev. Richard Astley writes in it:-

" The Chapel was rebuilt by the Care and Contribution of Government', after having been pulled down in the riots 6 July, 1715."

"I am not aware that any register has been lost. Whether a register was kept between 27 Oct., 1706, and 13 Oct., 1727, and which has been lost, I have no means of ascertaining. From the care that appears to have been taken to collect (apparently from Private books) the registers prior to 27 Oct., 1706, and those from 13 Oct., 1727, to 23 May, 1743, I should suppose if any register was kept during the interval I have mentioned, it must have been in some private Book of the Rev. Mr. Reynolds, and could not be recovered."
