 The Dwell’s Parish Records volumes 1 & 2 were published in 1913. They were a transcription of  the most fragile portions of the parish registers that had ben transcribed by the Diocesan Registry in Wells.  Some of the family information published in the website came from that source with additions from various people who are researching their family history.
The information about the Hipsisley is provided by Mike Matthews. The list refers to Ston Easton parish
Baptisms. Dec 1 1594, John son of John Hippisley Esq — son of John Hippisley III and his wife Dorothy Horner, died in 1597.
Dec 21 1594, Gabriel son of John Hippisley Esq — another son of John Hippisley III and his wife Dorothy, though closeness of his baptism date to the above John is suspicious.
Marriage. Dec 2 1594, George Skerne & Dorothy Hippisley — allegedly a daughter of John Hippisley I and Agnes Aleyn
