John Free where was he born ?
« on: Saturday 13 January 18 12:08 GMT (UK) »
Hi

I have a John Free who married Anne Clarke in Hildersham in 1659, I am descended from theii daughter Sarah who was baptised in Hildersham in 1673.

I spite of looking in various local parishes I dont seem to be able to locate his birth, interestingly there are a number of family trees on Ancestry with the same problem.  Any help would be much appreciated.

Kind Regards

David ;)

Hi Solidrock

Thanks, but the date is too early I think the Linton birth is the right one

Kind Regards
