The best way to see a sample of names is to search by entering a specific year.
The surnames produced by that appear to have original spelling retained.
I also did first name searches with odd spellings of common names from Withycombe for that century and they show up unaltered.
This small test concludes the names are not normalized. I would send the site to St Gabriel's for further review.
