What follows is a transcription of M.I.s for St. Nicholas', Deptford from two undated field notebooks belonging to an un-named person, possibly with the initials "R.H." which appear in ink at the foot of each entry when a fair copy was being written up sometime later. The field notebooks have been somewhat sadly used over time and may not even be complete. As there is no date to be found, one judges that the write up took place well before 1880.
