Parish Registers

"A History of the County of Hampshire: Volume 4" (pub 1911) indicates seven early registers -
(1) all entries, 1537 to 1673; (2) the same, 1673 to 1750; (3) baptisms and burials, 1750 to 1796; (4) baptisms and burials, 1796 to 1802; (5) baptisms and burials, 1802 to 1812; (6) marriages, 1754 to 1778; and (7) marriages, 1778 to 1812
and it this designation which is used here.
Philimore's "Hampshire Parish Registers: Volume 7" (pub 1905) covering Eling, Sopley, West Meon and Silchester only comments in detail on two earliest Eling registers, dismissing the others as "of the ordinary type".
