The ordinary Parish Register of Peak Forest Chapel is a folio book of paper, upon the first page of which is written

“This booke was bought and designed for the

Footnotes in Original

[1] A note on the back of the leaf for 1746 says:- “John Ashe, Minister came to Peak Forest May the 3d 1747.” He apparently succeeded Mr. Rose, as I find under 1746-7, “The Rev. Mr Jonathan Rose, Minister of Peak Forest. Buried Feby tbe 10th.”
[2] This marriage is No. 92 in the book, and the next is. No. 125, so evidently some leaves have been lost. John Ashe, Minister, signs the Register for Stephen Beard's marriage as he had done before for many years. This marriage is signed by Robert Thorp, Minister, and the next by J. Wolstenholm, so the defect may be owing to change of Incumbents.
[3] Entry unsigned vide below.
