The good thing is that the register is available to view online (free) so OP can see it for themselves  :)

I do not trust transcripts or other peoples trees and always like to see originals where possible

ADDED Should have said that was a good find DOB7  :)

Thanks Rosie99. I Agree - always check the original sources where possible. I love it when we get back to 16th century entries - obviously an old school cleric. Matanzas - you may find this useful for translating the entries

I enjoy reading your messages Rosie99 and DOB7 with the knowledge and skill that you demonstrate and I am very grateful for your help.
As I have read many times one doesn't always get the same result from a site each time you enter the same data or, indeed, get a result at all.
It is all to easy to take data from someones tree because it agrees with one's own.  Roots Chat has shown up my errors there for which I am grateful.  I must admit I had difficulty deciphering the Latin script in the Parish entry let alone translating it.
I shall now spend some time improving my research and thank you both again
