My husbands family have a copy of the book, we have an original manuscript which may have later been updated. Most of it covers dates pre 1800 except Somerset line which is later, and family trees for the lines mentioned above. There is an index of the Register for many areas 1500 onwards and many notes on individuals along with a history of each line.
