DONAGHEADY PARISH REGISTERS

The earliest surviving registers for this church are dated 1697 – 1723, however at this stage I have not attempted to extract any entries from them as many pages are very difficult to read.

The next period is 1753 – 1765 and these begin with the following notes :

Andrew Hamilton, D. D. died, Sept. 22d 1753, rector of Donoghkiddy about 64 years – must have been inducted at the age of 20, in the 1st or 2d year of William & Mary, 1608, or 1609.

1753. 14 baptisms this year, after Dr. Hamilton’s Death – No register came to the present Rector’s Hands, but a very imperfect one, confusedly kept in two Vestry Books, to the year 1732, or there about.

(signed) Geo Bracegirdle, Rector.

BURIALS

A note in the Burial register of 1754:

The reason for so few Burials are enter’d , is, an indecent custom of interring without sending to the Minister to attend – That the papists should, always, & the Presbyterians, generally, omit it, is not to be wonder’d; but it is astonishing, that those, who are of the Establish’d Church, should chuse to bury their deceased Friends’ like Dogs.
