To make this valuable historic document as visible as possible, what is below are only the thumbnails
of the original documents. Click on each one for an enlarged view.
The two lower documents are a typed transcript prepared at some later (unknown) date
so that the hand written names can be identified. It is obvious that while this transcript
was done by those with some familiarity with the original parishioners, that some errors
were made and some corrections were attempted.
[Note 1: It is obvious that those who did the typed transcript knew little of the British background.
On page 2, in the upper left portion, the document was signed by William Taylor,
Principal, Sir Walter St. John's School, London and lecturer on education at St. John's College Battersea.
The transcribers have rendered College as the name Totley and initially converted Battersea,
an English village at the time, into a person's name D. Atkinson.]
[Note 2: What is often forgotten in the popular lore, is that Rev. Lloyd was a family man
and the signatures of his wife Marion and of their children are of special interest.]
