I have collated the register with the Bishop's Transcripts 1599-1812 but there are no B.T's for 1601, 1631, 1642 to 1662, 1668 to 1671, 1682, 1692 to 1696, 1698, 1701, 1703, 1704, 1706, 1707, 1709, 1712, 1715 to 1718, 1720 to 1722 and 1805.
The first page of the earliest register contains the following: "This book was new bound May 1679 with the addition of some leaves of parchment. Those that were baptised from the year 1603 to the year 1618 were torn out of this book by the Parliament soldiers in the time of the civil war." (Doubt is thrown on this elsewhere in the register)
The communion plate was given by the Rt Hon Sir Thomas CHICHELEY, Master General of the Ordinance and Privy Councillor to King Charles II in 1679.
Registers contain annotations apparently in the handwriting of Robert PLUMTRE, notes on a storm in 1843, hard winter of 1844-45, the visit of Queen Victoria in 1843, church plate, glebe, tithes, brasses and restoration of the church, and the wills of Edmund BOULTEN and - BEHO, coachman to Lord Radnor dated 1757.
The Bishop's Transcript for 1599 states: we so also present Anne TITUN for forbidding George MORE banns of Matrimony in the Church.
I have copied a list of Rectors which have been indexed R.
I have not indexed godparents or witnesses to marriages.
This has been typed by C.L. and A E Hatton.

[From the "Cambridge Evening News" of May 1977: "Births, marriages and deaths have become a way of life for Mr Peter Layng. For he has spent the last 11 years copying out parish registers. The first register he copied was of Stapleford when he was researching his wife's side of the family and his hobby took off from there. Now he spends almost every morning at the County Record Office and is working on his 45th register. He has copied out big registers such as Bassingbourn as well as small ones like Tadlow. His lists are typed up in quadruplicate by Mr Colin Hatton and his wife Angela."]
