Not much in Raydon but these transcriptions were interesting:
1636 - plague raged this year but no death in Raydon
1637 - Plague raging in Bury St. Edmunds and in Hadleigh, yet this little town, thanks to God, continued safe. There was a four-month drought; after that, in time of harvest, there was abundant rain for two whole months, whence followed a great scaricity of all things.
1638 - The baptism of the land by various rains all through this summer made seed and corn and fruit so abundant that all things were sold more cheaply than during the preceding seven years.
1650 - Oct 1 Sterne, Blanch wife of Roger, formerly wife of William Gardner, [in Latin] then happy now through her wantonness reduced to much misery without consolation, died as an example to other old women who in wantonness marry again.
(this when all other listings just mention names and dates)
1651 - Dec 22 (Aves?) George - in despair on account of poverty and seeing a demon [?=suicide]
These notes were recorded in the margins of the Raydon parish registers by the church rector, Dr. Meyer. Transcribed by Charles Partridge.
