Notes:

The information in this table was taken from the Church of England / Anglican Parish Records, Box #1, Random at the Provincial Archives of Newfoundland and Labrador at the Rooms.

During the period shown, there were numerous times when the clergyman of the day was not available to perform the ceremony of baptism. Thus, it was left to others to substitute. Often, this would have been done by a prominent lay person of the church community. At other times, it would be done by another person, not always of that denomination. Even relatives, nurses, teachers, midwives, and others were called upon, particularly when a child’s hours and days were numbered.

Occasionally, the print on the photocopied page was somewhat illegible, so there exists here the possibility of a few errors in the transcription.
