If the midwife or family member had used water and the correct wording, then there isn't a baptism. The child is received into the congregation and the godparents make their promises on its behalf.

Do you mean that there is not a second Church Baptism, not that there was no valid baptism by the midwife or family member?

There are numerous posts on RootsChat about baptisms and private baptisms.

Where were they specifically, please?  Wouldn't glass blowing need really good coal?  (We visited the glassblowing centre last year, it was really impressive.)

The Ipswich Journal of 7 March 1891 mentions “Churn Milk Hall, Buxhall” in connection with a death. Buxhall seems to be a place between Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds. Later mentions of what seems to be the same place call it "Churn Milk Farm".

Does that mean that you have explained it 42 times?  :)

 NO it does not, it means various posters have replied, why do you think I meant just me?

A lot of the queries to RootsChat have been answered in the past, and it is always worth searching RootsChat

Bishopwearmouth Panns derived its name from the salt panns that were established there by the Bowes family in the late 1580s. It was a little over six acres of land reclaimed from the river by embankment, and was a separate township within the parish. There are records of baptisms of children from the "Panns" in the 1570s, so there may have been salt production, on a small scale, before the Bowes family development.

Long Sutton does not seem to have changed much from the 19th century https://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/side-by-side/#zoom=17&lat=51.0249&lon=-2.7591&layers=168&right=BingHyb
