i am looking for any information on the birth / baptism of william haslam born William Haslam / Hazlam

Born: - 1722   Alfreton, Derbyshire ??????? (Cannot find any proof that this is the correct date of birth. This is what someone else has posted but they cannot prove this either.
Baptised: - .???????
Married: - Mary Baker: - she was born 1718 in Cubley and baptised 19 Sept 1718    in Cubley. They married on 22 June 1743 in Crich, Derbyshire.
Died: - ?????

Fatherís alleged name: - Benjamin Haslom (born 1700 in Alfreton Pentrich) I have found Benjaminís baptism 1 March 1700 in Pentrich. Benjaminís parents are Thomas Haslem and Mary Thompson. Mothers alleged name Grace Brown (born 1704 in Duffield) she did marry Benjamin Haslam on 7 April 1727 at St Werburghs Derby.

I cannot find any proof of birth for William with his parents being Benjamin and Grace. This is what other people have posted but they cannot prove this either. Has anyone have any information that may help?

My train of thought as it stands on the information that someone has come up with:-

When Benjamin was born in 1700 this would mean his son William was born when Benjamin was 22 years old and his wife Grace was 18 years old which seems ok. The thing that seems a bit strange or wrong is they got married in 1727 which makes William 5 years old when they got married. Also I cannot find any evidence of the relationship between Benjamin, Grace and William. I cannot find anything to support William being born in 1722 in the area of Alfreton. I do have 3 children of Benjamin they are as follows:- Elizabeth Baptised 9 June 1728 in Alfreton
   ,Mary Baptised 25 Oct 1729 in Alfreton,Thomas Baptised 7 Oct 1732 in Alfreton

William Haslam / Hazlam born 1722 Alfreton - married Mary Baker (1718 - 1781) on 22 June 1743 in Crich.
People claim that William's father is Benjamin Haslam born 1700 in Pentrich. Benjamin married Grace Brown (1704). I am looking for proof that William is the son of Benjamin and Grace. Do you know anything about this? or does anyone out there have any proof? What i know is that William would be 5 years old when Benjamin and Grace got married.

Hope this helps.

Hi Steve
Sorry for delay in replying, all due to holiday and computer problems, thanks for the reply and information.
Which one of the Haslam family members are you connected to?
I live here in Doncaster and I remember a lady called Jess Haslam living near to us. She had a daughter whose name I have just† forgotten. I remember my Grandad saying she was related to us somewhere along the line.
I recently visited Saltergate, with a cousin of mine from California, because he was very interested in and wanted to see the statue of James Haslam.

Regards, Bill
