I've gotten all the information I need out of these parish register pages, however, they list plenty of unconnected individuals. If you have an ancestor who had an "event" (B/M/B) in one of these places at the dates covered, then you may get lucky and spot a match. Some of them are rather difficult to read, but I guess it'll help if you know the name of a person you're looking up.

Skelton Parish Register Page, 1674 (247Kb)
Because of some inaccuracies in the online transcription and listings of the Skelton Parish Register, I've put this big scan up of one of the pages I have. It contains unrelated baptisms and burials for March 1674 to April 1675. I was planning on transcribing it, but had too many problems with the handwriting!

Skelton Parish Register Page, 1677 (433Kb)
It contains unrelated baptisms, marriages, and burials for March 1677 to January 1678. I was planning on transcribing it, but had too many problems with the handwriting!
