WRAGBY REGISTERS, BOOK No. III.

By the REV, EDWARD H, SANKEY, M.A.

The third book of the Wragby Registers embraces that striking period of our national history comprised between the

years 1631 and 1704, and its contents are consequently of much more general interest than those of the previous volumes commented on in this Journal. The book is of parchment throughout,' consists of forty-seven leaves, and measures fifteen, by six and a half inches. It is, generally speaking, well and clearly written, and is in excellent preservation.

The entries are carried through the period of the Civil War without a break, although the facts that the marriages are for a year or two attested by the civil Registrar, that entries of Births are for a short period substituted for entries of Baptisms, and that among the Burials those of several soldiers are recorded, shew that even at Wragby, the owners of which were devoted loyalists, some of the results of the great social upheaval of the revolutionary period made themselves felt.

The book begins with the following heading Registrum ecclesiæ parochialis de Wragbie continens Baptismata Nuptias et obitus omnium hominum infra eandem parochiam Incipiens ffesto Annunciaconis beatæ virginis Mariæ Anno Domini nostri Salu : 1631 Anno regni regis nostri Caroli dei gratiæ Angliæ Scociæ Ffranciæ et Hibern regis fidei defensoris etc. Sexto Johanne Atkinsono Vicario et Ludimagistro.

Here Mr. Atkinson, who appears to have been appointed at least as early as 1617, calls bimself both Vicar and schoolmaster. A school has existed at Wragby from a very early period. King Edward VI.'s Commissioners in 1548 reported as follows: “ That a Grammar scole hath been heretofore continually kept in the Parish of Wragbye in the said county of Yorke. And that the Scolemaster there had for his wages yearly 6li. 16s. 4d. which scole is very mete
