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.
