Fanny Easton born c 1791 Ninfield
« on: Friday 04 August 17 17:33 BST (UK) »
Fanny Easton married Zebulon White on 28 June 1815 at All Saints, Hastings.  Fanny died in 1875 in Hastings aged 84 giving an approx. birth year of 1791

In the 1851, 61 and 71 censuses returns she is listed as having been born at Ninfield.

Checking the Ninfield parish records transcriptions on SFHG and FamilySearch, the only likely female was baptised on 26 October 1788 with surname Eston, d/o Joseph and Grace.  The problem is that on SFHG the forename is transcribed as Dlianny and on FamilySearch as Phanny!

Apart from looking at the original records does anyone have any idea how I can determine if it is Fanny?

Hi
It looks like it says Phanny on the parish register
....and Fanny on the BT!
