Hi. According to census, Mary was born c1835 - she was 16 on the 51 census, so 34 is is a possibility. I don't know much about Worcestershire villages. The fact that both places are near each other sounds as though it could be the right area though doesn't it.

Is the baptism on IGI?

Thanks for your help.

I got the baptism from the Counties in England listing from the IGI
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~hughwallis/IGIBatchNumbers/CountryEngland.htm

Put in Worcestershire then Stoke Prior etc.

One of the best research tools I have discovered recently is this index.

Many thanks for everyone's help. I have found Mary's baptism (hopefully), but they're all such common names there are so many possible choices. One day ...

Hi Sian

the only Stoke I can think of in WOR is Stoke Prior & cant fathom out anything that would resemble the word you read from the census

All the very best

Hi Sian

I just had another thought I wonder if it should be Stockton
