You may have problems, like thousands of others, due to the Stamp Duties Act of 1783 It was passed in order to raise money to pay for the American War of Independence. Under the provisions of the Act baptism, marriage and burial entries in each parish register were subject to an unpopular tax of 3d. It was extended by the Stamp Duties Act, 1785 ) to include non-conformists and finally repealed by the Stamps Act of 1794.
Much better to put three-penneth of food on the table than give 3d to the tax man,
