Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / What comes after Elizabetha?
« on: Friday 01 December 17 22:59 GMT (UK)  »
Can anyone please help decipher what comes after the mother's name on this baptism for 2 Sept 1686 at St Edward's in Leek (the middle line)? I'm also guessing that the baptism is for a boy whose name starts with a T.

Thanks

David

Yorkshire (North Riding) / Ripon parish registers on FindMyPast
« on: Sunday 21 May 17 11:46 BST (UK)  »
I've been doing quite a bit of research on my ancestors who lived in and around Ripon. I've noticed that when I search Yorkshire parish registers for Ripon on FindMyPast I often get two records for the same individual with different archive references. Checking the images shows that these are two different documents. Can anyone enlighten me as to whether these are actual PR entries, later transcriptions, or BTs, and how I can identify which is which? I'm finding that the brevity of some entries, e.g. no mother's names, making research difficult when a father still seems to be having children with a second or even third wife  (coincidentally who has the same first name as his previous wife  :-X ) at the same time as his son, who has the same first name as his father :'(

Also, does an entry for Ripon Cathedral actually mean that? I have relatives who lived in villages around Ripon that had their own churches, Bishop Monkton, for example, but PR entries for some individuals who lived there have entries for Ripon Cathedral when I would have expected them to be for their local church.

Then, some PR records for around the mid 1600s for a marriage have the marriage performed by the vicar then described as "Major of Ripon". What does this signify?

And again, why were the "publication of the agreements exercised in the forenoon on the Lords Dayes"? I'm assuming this is the equivalent of publishing the Banns?

Lincolnshire Lookup Requests / Albert Dovey, Killed in Action 28 Feb., 1917
« on: Monday 13 March 17 23:37 GMT (UK)  »
FindMyPast has an image of the report published in the Lincolnshire Chronicle on page 7 of the  24 March 1917 issue. Sadly, the image is such poor quality that it's entirely illegible. Would love to be able to get a copy of the article that I can read  :)
