Excerpt from Lancashire Registers III: Northern Part

Following the practice adopted in Volumes XV and XVI, the book now issued consists of a number of registers from adjacent parishes grouped together for convenience of reference. These three volumes include fifteen registers, and with those of Robert Hall and Hornby given in Volume IV, cover practically the whole of the northern part of Lancashire down to the River Ribble, the only exceptions being Goosnargh, Fernyhalgh, and Alston Lane, which will probably be included in the next volume of Lancashire registers along with Preston.

It is very unfortunate that the old mission of Ulverston, which represented all Lonsdale north of the sands, cannot produce any register older than the one now printed. Fr Thomas Daniel alias West, S.J., who was a well-known historian and genealogist, was in charge of this mission from 1767 to 1779, and it seems hardly credible that he did riot keep a register; but although every effort has been made to find one in various likely places, the search has so far proved fruitless.

A similar attempt at Thurnham was more fortunate, and resulted in the finding of a burial register not previously known to be in existence.

As the archdiocese of Liverpool contains some sixty old registers, all of which are now transcribed, whilst the diocese of Salford may yield about twenty more, some of which are also ready, and the total number printed is only twenty-one, it will be seen that there still remains much to be done for Lancashire alone.

Subscribers in the County Palatine, however, cannot expect to have any more work done at the expense of the Society for some time; but as it is extremely desirable that these records should be preserved ere it is too late, it is to be hoped that when the present war is over, some effort may be made locally to collect funds for this purpose.

It seems only right to add that the cost of printing to the Society has been appreciably lightened by the payment by Mr W. B. S. Smith of £55, being £50 promised by his father, the late Mr William Smith, and an addition of his own.
