- Notes on Charing 1920.
The Parish Church of Charing "was burnt upon Tuesday the 4th
August 1590 and the bells in the Steeple melted with the extremity of the fire
Nothing of the church was left but the bare walls except the floor over the
porch and the floor over the turret where the weathercock doth stand. The fire
chanced by means of a birding piece discharged be one Mr Dios which fired in the
shingels the day being extreem hot and the shingels very dry". Thus is the
calamity recorded by Stahlschmidt in his Church Bells of Kent. Weever states the
birding piece was discharged at a pigeon then upon the church. This accounts for
the absence of any Memorials in the church of Mediaeval date and the fire also
destroyed the glass windows which contained records of the Brent family in the
Lady Chapel. The fire appears further to have burnt the Registers and other
records as the existing books start from 14th August 1590.
The Existing Parish Registers are:
1. Baptisms 1590-1685 [1683 wanting]
There is a break from 1685 to 1698.
II. Burials 1698-1746 }
Baptisms 1698-1746 } In part a duplicate of III
Marriages 1698-1745 }
III Memoranda: Inductions re. chronicle of the weather 1767.
Dissenters Children 1698-1705.
IV Burials 1813-1853.
V Baptisms 1813-1834.
VI Baptisms 1834-1882
VII Banns and Marriages 1754-1812.
VIII Marriages 1813-1837.
IX Marriages 1837-1916.
X Baptisms 1833 to date.
XI Burials 1853 to date.
XII Marriages 1917 to date.
After the fire the Churchwardens purchased a large quarto volume, paper, bound
in limp dark brown leather, tooled. "The Book of Regester for the Parish of
Charinge for the year of our Lord 1590, 14th August". Headings
were opened at various places for Christenings, Marriages and Burials and for
the parish accounts. The first three were discontinued from 1598 when they were
copied into a new parchment Register [ Register I] and the book was then used
solely for accounts which run from 1590 to 1672.
Volume II contains Burials in Woollen 1698-1801.
Volume III Accounts 1698-1740.
Volume IV Book of Briefs 1707-1740.
Volume V Assessments and Accounts 1672-1724.
Volume VI Overseers Accounts 1750-1772.
The series then goes down to recent date.
The accounts in the Volume described above are full of interest and deserve to
be printed more or less in full. The following extracts relating more
particularly to the church will serve to show the general character.
