Note. – The Marriages are contained in three books. Volume I, 1539-1754. Volume II, 1755-1803. Volume III, 1813-1839. The oldest book is an interesting parchment volume, containing some 69 pages, and divided into three divisions, Burials, Marriages, Baptisms. The earlier part is in the writing of Thomas Fowke, as the following entry placed before the Baptisms shows :-

“A true copie of the Register Booke
Of Buckland and Laberton copied out and
Written by Thomas Fowke als Wheler and
Continued by John Maltbie, Parson ther

Wardens and divers other p’ishioners in

Fowke divided his paper into three columns, placing the name of the month on the left, and the date to the right of the entry proper. The writing is very good, and the whole book in fair condition, it measures 13 by 6 inches and has a flexible parchment cover. The extracts have been taken by the Rev. J. Harvey Bloom, M.A., and are printed under his supervision with the consent of the Rector, the Rev. F. Hull
