Calvary Chapel, Brynmawr, Wales

Baptisms 1848-1872

as transcribed by Judith A. Sylte

  • This information was transcribed by me 28 June 2004 from digital images I took at Calvary (Baptist) Chapel, Brynmawr 21 May 2004.
  • The original document is not formatted in columns. I have done it here for clarity.
  • Words followed by ___ and/or (?) are not fully legible in my digital image and should be re-checked.
  • Some spellings are phonetic and nonstandard, e.g. Lewezer = Louisa.
  • All information should be verified from the original or a cleaner digital image as soon as possible.

    A Note from Judith about the records:

    My transcription begins from an image of the lower half of a page, the first date for which is 8 Jan 1848. My separate photo of the top half of that page was ruined, so this transcription is missing data for 1842-1848 which the original church book has.
