Carlow Parish

The following extracts (continued from page 7, Vol. V, Part I of the JOURNAL for 1901) are taken from an old copy of the Vestry books of this Parish, formerly in the possession of Wm. Browne-Clayton, Esq., and now, I believe, in the Town Hall, Carlow, with other books, & c., forming what was known as the Jackson collection.

It will be seen that there are some entries previous to 1675, viz., minutes of a Vestry held 13th October 1669; and also some burials in the church during that year.

 P.D.V.

On the second page of Vol. I is given “a list of those who hath been buried in the church in the year of our Lord God 1669”’: --

The next meeting dated 4th April 1670 , appointing church-wardens, sidemen, and overseers of the highways; and on the back of this page are a few more entries of burials; but whether they belong to this year or to 1669 does not appear. The first is’: --
