Can anyone help with confirming the birth details of TSC, circa 1780? I have one in Gravesend but cannot trace how he got from there to London. Champions are a Huegonot family. :

The only one I keep finding  with middle name Soley is the one in Gravesend. I can find a Thomas Champion, no middle name, baptised in Chelsea 23 Jan 1780 to a Thomas and Mary.

The Gravesend one looks good to me. It's not that far from London and our ancestors often travelled further than we think. I have a 4 x gt grandfather born in Hertfordshire, moved to Durham and then to Yorkshire.

Thanks. He is a direct descendant of my wife.
It is frustrating that I cannot get any further back. There are hundreds of Champions and I feel that Northern France is likely destination. say, 150 years earlier.
