Under Stockport Hillgate Tabernacle were the results of two ministers, father and son, who went around Lancashire baptising and entering them into a book.

Registers of Rev Peter Walkden of baptisms at several churches (1709-1769)
Garsdale c1709-1710
Chipping and Newton c1710-1722
Hesket Lane and Newton c1722-1739
Holcone "and occasionally" 1739-1744
Stockport "and occasionally" c1744-1769
Bramhall, Newton and Littlemoor c1723, 1747-1768

Registers of Rev Henry Walkden of baptisms of several churches (from 1747)
Tingwhistle "and occasionally" c1747-1758
Heaviley Hall nr Stockport c1760-1761
Stockport "and occasionally" c1761
Wimondhouses, Newton and Hesket Lane c1761-1793
? Stockport m1770

I have found a few of my Kippaxs from Haggate in the Wimondhouses, Newton and Hesket Lane in 1766-1769.
I have written the "areas" as is, and I cannot explain the "and occasionally".

In the same register under Stockport "and occasionally", I found this which is quite sad
Son to a man who is run away. Mother died as soon as she bore him. July 20th 1760
AND
Son to Tho's Linny's wifes mother. April 14th 1763

I think you may be right Rex, hadn't thought of that one. Wasn't Yeomans used by the Quakers?
