Phillimore's Marriages - Withcote 1681 to 1837

Volume 1. Is a small register of five leaves of parchment in parchment cover, in good preservation. Its size is 7 in. by 9 in., and it contains entries (partly transcript) of Births, Marriages and Burials, generally alloted to separate pages, but sometimes mixed.

Volume II. For Marriages; a thin paper folio in boards, rather damaged by damp. The entries are on the printed forms with Banns attached and end with 1812, leaving many pages blank. The Baptisms and Burials of this period are in another thin folio, partly parchment and partly paper, in rough calf boards.

Volume III. Marriages from 1812-1848, with later entries duplicated in modern books. This book is a parchment-covered folio of printed forms, and corresponds with Baptism and Burial Registers still in use.

There are Transcripts at Leicester of the lost volume of Withcote Register for the year 1631 to 1634 and 1636 to 1639.
