Betty Elizabeth Wyatt of Sparropit 1795-1870
« on: Tuesday 23 August 16 05:42 BST (UK) »
I believe my Betty Elizabeth Wyatt was born 1795 Sparrowpit Derbyshire.
She married Thomas Hadfield 26 Dec 1820 at Glossop.
During her lifetime I found her living in Bugsworth.
She died Bellevue , Chinley , Chapel en le Frith.
There may be am MI for the family at Chinley Chapel ( family name Hadfield).

Most of my Wyatt family lived Glossop during the 1800s but to date I have not been able to pin point earlier generations.
It is my understanding that these locations are all in the same general and may be a pointer as to where I will find earlier generations.Her parents were James Wyatt and Hannah Wood.
I cannot see that Betty Elizabeth was baptised Glossop.
Where might I find her baptism?

Their first child Sarah Hadfield was born Bugsworth and baptised 5 Apr 1822 Chapel en le Frith.

Help greatly appreciated.

My immediate observations are that a) she is only ever shown as plain Betty and b) if you have not found her baptism how do you know who her parents are?

The 1851 census gives birthdate ca. 1797 and the only likely baptism would appear to be:

Betty Wyatt bp.30/7/1797 Chapel en le Frith, dau. of a Grace Wyatt.   (familysearch)

Sparrowpit next to Chapel en le frith.

Hi

Agree with Annette, name and birth year agree plus sparrowpit is only 2 miles from chapel en le frith.

You need to look at the actual image on family search. It states Betty wyatt dau of grace wyatt, alias J.  The entry does not appear to be complete.

Thank you Annette and Spendlove.
I have looked at the image and puzzled by " alias J".
Another site has it transcribed as "illegit".

On other records from the same period are clearly written 'illegitimate'.

I have seen 'alias' on other illegitimate baptisms but with two full surnames and, in one case, the second name is the mother's surname. The other is presumably the father's name. I have also seen it used for a widow to indicate her maiden name - e.g. in a will or on remarriage.

Thanks David
I am thinking the entry is incomplete and not revealing the father's detail.
