All the children's names & dates are written by George (or Jane) in the front. A large, very heavy Bible, the leather cover is soft, like suede, and is bumped & worn on corners.

Sadly the front endpage, (which has the family tree written on back) the frontispiece & title page are still attached to the front cover ... but detached from the rest of the Bible. George died 1865. Weighs about 4k. before packing. 1808
