The following Egleston entries from "The Register of the Parish of Settrington, 1559-1812," transcribed and edited by Francis Collins, and privately printed for The Yorkshire Parish Register Society, 1910, pertain to the family of Bygod Egleston (or Eggleston) of Windsor, Conn., and include the date of Baptism and the paternity of the emigrant. There was a family of some importance, named Bygod, in this parish, and it is believed that the mother of Bygod Egleston was a member of this family. It is likely that a search of Egleston and Bygod wills would be productive of additional data; but the contributor of this article, not having a personal interest in the family, contents himself with giving the essential clue, and will leave it to Eggleston descendants to pursue it further.

The printed register of Settrington contains a literal transcription of the entries in the original Latin. We present below an English translation, which will be more useful to the average reader, with page references for each entry, enabling those who desire to consult the original entries in the printed volume to do so without referring to the index. Dates from Jan. 1 to Mar. 24 inclusive are old style.
