Transcriber/Donator: Sheila Duddy

Transcriber Notes:

It is the mother’s married name that is often given by the priest so what transcriber as entered as the mother’s surname is often that of the father. There are sure to be some cases where the surnames were the same, of course.
The abbreviations of first names, e.g. Jno., Jas., Wm. etc., are often very unclear, and transcriber often confused Marg. (for Margaret) with Mary, and possibly confused “Patt” with “Batt”. Confusion with some surnames too - for instance, Burke and Rourke, Hallinan and Halloran, Cummins and Cunneen, Conlaghty and Coulaghty, Hartney and Hastings. As a result, transcriber notes that transcription must be treated with caution.
Entries were not always made in order of date. It looks as if the curate chipped in with his baptisms every now and then. So when you are looking for the original of a record, look over the whole of the page.
Some Baptisms were included in Marriage entries in error, these have been included with the Baptism transcription.
