Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: Baptism of George Yewde, 1642

It's the parish register rather than the BT's but it does contains births, burials and marriages so I think you are right and it is a burial.

So back to the drawing board for George born c1640 but possible the burial for George born 1604!

One door closes and another opens...

Thanks for your help.

Thanks everyone - I'm open to suggestions on this.  The register is Frodsham St Lawrence in Cheshire and looking at the adjacent pages the entries seem to be in different writing and styles so difficult to say.  A burial would make sense given no father's name - and there usually is one on the other entries. 

So I've found a George Yewde and possibly lost one on the same day!

Thanks Vance,

Helsbie is a place near where they were baptised, I wonder if it is George & Thomas of Helsbie - or is this wishful thinking?

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Baptism of George Yewde, 1642

Hi All,

I'm trying to work out if the attached parish record shows the baptism of George & Thomas, or if Thomas is a completely separate baptism and George has no father listed.  I'm struggling to work out the word (or words) after Thomas to see if it is a different surname for Thomas.

Any help appreciated,

Thanks,

Jean

Hi John,

In my extended tree  I have James Mounfield (b. 1821) married to Emily Clarke (b. 1843) in 1864.  When James died in 1879 she married Samuel Pennell in 1881 (my line).

James and Emily had a son called Edward Mounfield born 1864 - could he be the one who married Florrie Owen therefore the father of Roy?

George Moore and Fanny Caroline Newhall are also in my tree - George was the son of Thomas Done Moore but I can't see any Clarke's in this line.  Moore is my line, so it could be in the Newhall family.

Hi Lizzie,

Richard left a will - it won't help you with origins but does back up your other information about Green Lane.

You can download it from Find my Past...

Thank you both, that's exactly what I was looking for and fits perfectly with what everyone remembers.
