Bedfordshire baptismal Index
« on: Saturday 09 December 17 21:00 GMT (UK) »
Hi

Could anyone tell me if there is a searcheable Index for Baptisms in Bedfordshire. I am trying to locate my ancestor Levi Taylor who was born between 1763/7. I have been able to find him in Herts. He Married in St Albans in 1790 first 3 children born in Hemel Hempstead. He was married after his first wife died in Abbots Langley and then moved to Ivinghoe in Bucks, where he and his wife died.

Many thanks

David

Levi Taler 19 October 1766 Welton by Lincoln, Lincolnshire parents William and Sara

Hi Emelton

Many thanks for trying, I too have tried both these routes and also Ancestry without success. I am told that some parishes in Beds and Bucks are not covered by these sites so I am reaching out to anyone who might have access to these County records.

Many thanks

David  :D

There is no Levi Taylor (or Tayler/Taylar/Tailer/Tailor/Tyler/Tylor) for that period listed on the Beds Surnames Index CD available from Beds FHS...
