Early registers (pre 1773) are very hard to read on the fiche copies as they are very dark.

From microfiche copies of the Bishop's Transcripts in Swindon Reference Library
Note - the Parish Registers say that there were no entries for the years 1774-1794, although the Bishop's Transcripts for that period say they are copies of entries in the Parish Registers!
