Baptism of Elizabeth BANKS B abt 1820 in Wiltshire
« on: Monday 26 March 07 17:40 BST (UK) »
I am trying to find the baptism of Elizabeth Banks who was I believe the unmarried mother of my family trace-VIRTUE ELMS . Virtue's birth certificate shows Elizabeth Banks has her mother .Virtue was born in 1842 at Lacock [Chippenham district]. I have found on 1851 Virtue with her mother [but Elizabeth was then a Bromham having married Christopher Bromham in 1844. But Christopher died in 1848. I also know that Elizabeth again remarried at a later date ,a William Taylor who appears as a lodger on the 1851 census. Elizabeth is shown as Lacock born.

Any information would be welcomed of Elizabeth and her parents. Thankyou

Hi

The actual Lacock Parish Record for baptism states.......

21 May 1820, Eliza, illegitimate daughter of Ann Banks, lewd and disorderly woman.

Thankyou for the information. It makes interesting reading. Bit of a surprise that comments like this were written into the records. There is an Elizabeth Banks at Corsham and another at Melksham who could be possibles--but this looks the best fit I think. Thanks again

It varies from parish to parish.   Some vicars make no comment at all, the majority just mention the fact of illegitimacy, while others make further comments.   In a few instances attemps were obviously made to discover the alleged father, often married men, and they were named as well.   You just never can tell.

Again, many thanks. In passing, can you find anything  from your baptism sources of information on James Elms[could be splelt ELMES] born about 1775 in Wiltshire around Chippenham/Corsham/Melksham areas. He was father of Robert Elms[Elmes] b about 1805 at Lacock. I can't find anything which shows them together.

I know these postings are from long ago but I am a direct decedent of the Banks and associated families of Lacock Witshire. I have inherited many threads and an extensive family tree. I am willing to share information but you will need to check it as although I have full faith in its origins ,I didn't research it all. It is the culmination of seventy years work.
