No other birth for John so yes it looks like he was Baptised twice. It wasn't that uncommon. Once for naming the child & twice for acceptance into the Church if memory serves.
How odd that none of the others were?  Mmmm strange.

Haven't gone too deep yet but is it possible the 1st. John died.

I can't see a death & a John Hall Parkin aged 4m is living with Rebecca Hall nee Parkin on the 1851 census.

Not sure if i've gone wrong somewhere?
Wondering why he would be baptised twice, & the cloth draper/labourer profession makes me wonder if i have 2 families?

I'm looking at the baptism/s for John Hall Parkin  at St Mark, Woodhouse Leeds
there are 2:  10 Dec 1850 to John Parkin Cloth Dresser & Elizabeth
then 8th June 1851 to John Parkin labourer & the Late Elizabeth
There is a birth for John Hall Parkin 1850 Leeds mmn Hall, this matches a Marriage between Elizabeth Hall & John Parkin Cloth Draper. 25th December 1840
there are 2 other baptisms for John & Elizabeth cloth draper at St Marks, Emma 9/3/1845 Alfred 24/12/1848

Then at St Marks there is a baptism for the John Hall Parkin to John & Elizabeth Parkin labourer & James Parkin 22/5/1843 (died 1843) checking on the gro James mmn is Hall. Alfred & Emma also have Hall as mmn

Hello,
Does any one know if what would be the local paper for Pilning circa 1918? I'm trying to find out the story of why local lad Gilbert Rowland Humphries was awarded a Military Medal for Bravery, all that i can see documented is a mention in the London Gazette 13/9/1918.

thanks

Yes, just no idea as to why he received it! How incredibly frustrating.
