NOTES:

(1) Funny to find a Ralph with a wife Hannah in this group. It would appear that an earlier Ralph may exist.
(2) George & Mary PEAT(?) whose children were baptised in 1895, the name is probably Peat, but the formation of the 'T' could be taken as a 'K', and thus read PEAK. It is noted that there were a number of "PEAK" entries in the Registers, which were taken to be another family. It may well be that these entries should also have been noted, as a misspelling of the name.
