Ancestry have recently released  a new record set - "Sydney, Australia, Anglican Parish Registers, 1818-2011"

I can't access these records, even though I have a Heritage Plus sub. I've sent them numerous emails with no reply - very frustrating.

I'm particularly interested in the record for Enid Elgar Coulson, that is, if she was born in 1912.

Can anyone tell me if this is the case?

Enid Elgar Coulson was born 8th March 1912 and baptised on the 10th July the same year. Her mother was Mary. There is the name Edward written above Mary, but that has been crossed out.

Thanks Ros. That's a mystery - I can't find any Sydney suburbs that are even close. I know Mary Coulson was living in Darlinghurst when Enid was born and in Camperdown the following year.

Page 194
Baptisms administered in the Cathedral of St Andrew, Sydney, in the County of Cumberland in the Year 1912
When baptised  July 10
(Line entry number) 2455  (Jang, the docment does not say ‘Line entry number’, they are my words)
When born  March 9  1912
Child’s Christian Name  Enid Elgar
Parents’ Names   Edward (struck through)  Mary COULSON,
Quality or Profession  NO remarks in ink, possible pencil remarks.
Abode  Leichhardt
Reverend:  C H Clark

I comment:
It is very likely that there’s ‘pencil’ comments entered by the clergyman.  I ‘think’ I can read the word ‘married’ adjacent to Edward and above Coulson.    There’s SIX possible words in pencil.    I am quite sure that clergy would record pencil comments where they may have had information about the parentage, but were aware of no formal marriage between the couple.

Perhaps it would be sensible to send email enquiry to Anglican Diocese Office in Sydney and wait for their reply ... could take a while for that reply !

It is of course possible that the 'pencil' comments are NOT pencil comments, but bleed throughs from the other side of the page.    August 4 1869 may well be a bleed through into the 'blank' box in the image I attached.
