The formatting of the following text has been designed to match, as closely as a web browser will allow, that of the original. Thus, page headings are included with text and page numbers arranged differently for left and right facing pages as in the original. However, web browser references have been added to all page headings to support direct access to specific pages using the format #pnnn where nnn is the page number sought.

In addition, to assist navigation, web browser references have been added to the start of each of the books of the register as follows:

[Here follow baptisms and burials at Edstaston, from Aug. 28, 1763, to May 3rd, 1772, all of which, with one or two others, are to be found in their place in the Edstaston Register.

[The following entries on the insides of the cover, etc., are all in the handwriting of the Rev. Richard Walker.]

Any Omission of Baptisms and Funerals in the Aston quarter, for part of the Year 1802 & the beginning of the Year, 1803, In short, the time that Thos. Jeffreys the Miller was Overseer of the poor.
The several omissions that may be found during that time are on account of the above Gentleman refusing to pay the fees as usual.

[Three lines are here erased.]

The Lands in Whixall as described on the other side of this leaf were let to Mr. William Churton of Whixall on the 2nd day of April 1816, for the term of seven years, to commence from Lady-day last — the Rent £12 pr. Ann.
There are two pieces of Land in the Township of Whixall in the Parish of Prees — now in the holding of Mr. Thomas Weston of the Lower-house — they are about an equal size — four acres each — for which he has paid five Guineas yearly — belonging to the poor of this Parish — the Rent of which has been distributed in Bread every Lord's day.
The said Lands are bounded on the East by the Lane leading thro' Whixall; on the South by Chapel Lane — On the West & North by Mr. Samuel Weston's & Edward Pane Esqr's, of Whitchurch, Land.— A footway leads thro' both pieces from Stanley's Green to Chapel Lane.
There were growing on these Lands when viewed by Richard Walker, Curate, & Mr. Jno. Walmsley, of Cremore, Churchwarden, in the month of July, 1801, seven good Oak trees & eight good Ashes besides a number of Cyphers of different kinds.
