We’ve spotted this impressive 17th Century Burchatt Family Bible coming up for sale at Bloomsbury Auctions on the 11th June 2015.

It contains a lovely Family register with dates ranging between 1609 and 1669. Our Facebook follower Rachel Willis has provided us with the following transcript:

John Burchatt the sonn of Thomas Burchatt baptised January 12 in 1608
September 3 1661 Mathew Burchett departed this lyfe in the yeare of our lord
14 [month?] 1634 Edward Burchatt ye sonn of Thomas Burchatt departed his lyfe in ye yeare of our lord

John Burchatt departed this life in the yeare of our lord god 1666 Aprill 6
Thomas Burchatt departed this life in the yeare of our lord god ?? nov? 1669

We know nothing more about the Burchatt family but always welcome submissions as usual in the comments below
