Yorkshire (West Riding) / Jonathan Waite
« on: Wednesday 30 January 19 16:25 GMT (UK)  »
The attachment is from the Baptism of Jonathan Waite in 1722.

Can any body decipher what is written where the date usually is?

My best guess is "Easter Day"

Glamorganshire / Henry Rimson

In 1841, can anybody find Henry Rimson, born c 1786, possibly Monmouthshire.

Glamorganshire / David Robert, c 1852, Coity
« on: Tuesday 01 January 19 13:08 GMT (UK)  »
In 1861 at ref Piece: 4077; Folio: 31; Page: 6 I have the Jenkin family. (also recorded as Jenkins)

Included in the census is David Robert, Grandson, 9, Coity. (I'm assuming Robert is the surname as I've not found a record for a David Robert Jenkin(s)).

I cannot tie him into the Jenkin family and any pointers would be appreciated.

Somerset / Mary Jane Matthews ne Baker
« on: Saturday 15 December 18 08:04 GMT (UK)  »
Mary Jane was born in 1835 in Bishops Lydeard to James and Maria Baker.

In 1853 she had an illegitimate daughter, Bella.
In 1881 she appears to be in Taunton Union workhouse as Mary J Matthews (born 1834)
In 1891 she is with her mother Maria as Mary Jane Matthews.

Can anybody find a "logical" marriage? )There is one registered in Leicester in 1870 but .......)
I'd also be interedted in her death registration.

Father appears to be William Strachan, born St Pancras, London c 1850.

From GRO, mother's maiden name was Woodland. But unable to find a marriage to William
