Parish Registers

"A History of the County of Hampshire: Volume 4" (pub 1911) indicates several early registers as follows
The first book of the registers contains all entries from 1672 to 1796 except marriages, which cease in 1754 and are continued in three printed books from 1754 to 1766, from 1767 to 1797 and from 1797 to 1812. Baptisms and burials are continued in two separate books, both from 1797 to 1812, and printed on parchment in forms having reference to the threepenny stamp duty of 1783 but without the stamps themselves.
The registers are held at the Hampshire Archive http://www3.hants.gov.uk/archives/hals-collections/hals-parish-registers.htm, which notes there are gaps in the registers up to 1731.
