Aveton Gifford Parish Registers.

Baptisms for the 1780s

This file contains the baptismal information for one decade. It is not an exact transcript of the register but it includes all the information that the registers contain. Anything that cannot be included in the standard form is listed in notes.
Most of the entries in the registers list the date of Baptism, the name of the child, and the names of both parents. In the earliest registers, only the name of the father is shown and in the case of the "base-born" chidren usually only the mother is named. In some cases the abode and occupation of the father is shown, and in some cases the date of birth is given. In those cases it is indexed under both dates.
The register includes references to "privately baptised", which usually either means that the child was baptised soon after birth because it was felt that it was unlikely to survive, or that the child was born into a family of some substance. The child was usually later brought to the church, and sometimes that is when the entry was made in the register; it is not clear whether the child was baptised again. There is also occasional reference to a "christening", which usually followed a private baptism. That is assumed to relate to the introduction to the church.
