Cambridgeshire / Re: Robert Shortland baptism look up please
« on: Sunday 19 June 11 17:09 BST (UK)  »
Selina can I be a pest and ask you to do me another look up on Cambs baptism list please.  I'm looking for Robert Shortland's father in law, William WOOTON. I know he died in Cambridge on 13/10/1859 aged 90 so that would make his birth 1769.
Thanks in advance

Norfolk Lookup Requests / Susannah WOOT(T)ON
« on: Sunday 19 June 11 14:58 BST (UK)  »
Hi there, I wonder if anyone can help. My gt x 3 grandmother Susannah WOOTON/WOTTON is recorded on three census as saying she was born in Wells next to the Sea in Norfolk.

She gives conflicting dates for her birth but basically it is somewhere between 1800 and 1811.  I have searched the familysearch site who have original Norfolk Parish Records online, including St Nicholas, Wells, although not indexed, so I had to go through the books a page at a time. :o

I did find a John Wotton b 1810 and a James Wotton b 1811, to William Wotton and Susanna Gathercole, but failed to find any sign of Susannah.
These names would fit as there is a William Wooton living near Susanna in Cambridge in the 41 and 51 census and I have the death of both William and Susan in Cambridge.
So where is Susannah's birth?  Any help much appreciated.

Many thanks David and Selina.  Selina, as I assume you have access to Cambs Baptism list, you have just confirmed what I feared...that Robert was not born in Cambridge.  Because he died in 1829 I have no census records to glean a clue as to where he was born.
I have found a Robert Shortland born in 1785 to a Richard and Mary Shortland in Dorking, Surrey, and it's tempting to think this is him, especially as he called his son Richard, but how do I prove it? Aghhh! ::)
Thanks again. :)

Thanks Pat.  What a lovely site.   Now all I need are the records from St Peter's Cockfield.  ;)

Hi Carole and many thanks for the speedy reply.  I had seen that birth at Cavendish in Familysearch, but Sarah states on both the 51 and the 61 census that she was born in Cockfield, which seems very specific. :-\ 
Clutching at straws, I even checked that Cockfield has a church in case they had to travel to one at Cavendish, but it does. ;)
Thanks again.

I'm trying to trace the birth of my gt x 3 grandfather, Robert SHORTLAND, and discover who his parents were.  I calculate his year of birth as 1784, getting this from his age of 45 at his death, which I found in Cambridge Records Office being 2/4/1829.  I also know that he married Susannah WOOTON at St Clements, Cambridge on 23/7/1827.
As I live in Yorkshire it's a bit of a long trek back to continue my search, so do hope someone can help.
A huge thanks in advance,
cynn :)

Hi I'm new here so hope I'm posting this in the right place. :-\ 
I'm looking for the birth date of Sarah Elizabeth Kemp in Cockfield, Suffolk, and trying to find out who her parents were.  I know she married John Vincent in St James Church, Bury St Edmunds on 24/2/1827 so guess she will probably have been born around the first ten years of the century.
Also, I know that John Vincent was born in or around 1805 in Bury St Edmunds, but need to find his parents too.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
