Christening Places?
« on: Tuesday 05 September 17 04:49 BST (UK) »
Wonder if somebody can help me, please.   Family Search has Christening records for Elizabeth Scott (4 May 1823) and her sister Mary Ann (29 July 1827) in Colehill.  It also has another record for  the same girls, same date but the place is Wimbourne Minster. Can anybody explain this for me, please.

Colehill is about a mile or so from Wimborne Minster; perhaps the transcription should read Colehill, Wimborne Minster.

You might find this useful:  http://www.opcdorset.org/

Just found the Parish Register image;  baptised at Wimborne Minster. Parents James, a farmer and Mary. Abode shown as just Wimborne.

Thank you Nanny Jan. I wonder if the family might have been living at Colehill.

I would think they were as he is a farmer; just a short distance down the hill to the Minster.

I live in the area!

Thank you again, Nanny Jan. Looked at the Colehill info, and it wasn't a Parish until the late 1800's.
Would the children have been Baptised in the Minster? Mary Ann (c 1827) was my gggrandmother.

Nice to be able to 'pay back' some of the help that I have had over the years.   :)
