  • Notes 
    • REF: Baptisms at St Peter in the Parish of Heysham
      Baptisms recorded in the Register for the years 1792 - 1812
      http://www.lan-opc.org.uk/Heysham/index.html
      There are two registers for baptisms covering this period. One covers the period 1743-1812, but only has baptisms to March 1805, and the second is a pre-printed register covering the period 1792-1812. In addition to the above, there is a clerk's roughbook.
      In this transcription, the first is referred to as Vol. 2, and the second referred to as Vol. 3 and is the primary source. Occupations have mostly come from Vol. 2 or the clerk's roughbook, dates of birth from Vol. 3.
