Burials 1656 to 1730

Transcribed from the Parish Registers and donated to the Dorset OPC Project by Ros Taylor

A typical early entry of burial was worded like this (I have kept the same spelling):

Anno Domini 1680 October 28 Anne Tuffin, an infant, was buried being wrapt up in sheeps woolen only. Whereof Affidavit was made by Elizabeth Marsh and Anne Bason, November 5, before William Okeden Esquire and by him certified.

Phrases such as “a poor maid”, “an ancient maid” or “ancient widow” were often used to describe the deceased.
