Big days for baptisms

I managed to transcribe another year of baptisms this week - yes, only a single year's worth! I blame curate John Felix though. It's not like he let things slide and had to do a big catchup that year, but for some reason on 25 Jun 1837 he baptised 16 people, then the following Sunday 2 July another 25!

This coincides with the introduction of civil registration on 1 July that year - but I suspect that this isn't actually just coincidence. I wonder what conversations were being held in Wing around this time!
