IN the ' Report of Manuscripts in Various Collections,' vol. iv. (Hist. MSS. Com.), 1907, under ' Records of the Corporation of Aldeburgh, in the County of Suffolk,' and referring to the " Chamberlains' Account - books,"' occurs the following : V. Folio volume, in parchment cover, marked F; leaves not numbered 1666-1687. On the first page are notes of the accounts for 1656, and at the end of the volume (reversed) is a very important Marriage Register for the years 1653- 1656, kept by Henry Searle, M.A., the Minister, who was chosen Parish Registrar by vote of the inhabitants. " Births and Baptizings and Burialls " are also noted as being entered, but they are not contained in this volume. On going carefully through this volume, however, I found the " Burialls," but the " Baptizings " are certainly missing ; and on counting the leaves where p. 308 should appear, there is evidence that the" pages containing these entries have been removed. These Marriages and Burials are particularly valuable as being the only dates known in the middle of the seventeenth century. The Church Register containing the Baptisms, Marriages and Burials from 1600 to nearly 1700 has been lost, and no Bishop's tran- script is known. A query inserted many years ago in ' N. & Q. 1 as to its fate pro- duced no information.
