Family History Beginners Board / Re: Full Baptism
« on: Friday 30 October 20 14:12 GMT (UK)  »
Just to add a little more confusion, if that isn't too strong a word, the page in the parish register, preceding the one where John Maycock's record is, has these records -

John Heritage ..."Received his baptism December 8th 1799"

Susannah? Reading, "baptised October 1799 .... Received December 25".
Will Warmant "Received his full baptism 25th March 1798"

Regarding the suggestion that a first baptism may have been if the child was sickly, I can't see a corresponding burial record so this may not have been the case here.

Thank you for your comments. I too believe it is St Margaret's church as the only other church appears to be Roman Catholic. On a minor related point, I do know that Jehovah's Witnesses also believe in and use full baptism and I think there may be other faiths that follow the same course. A little more digging methinks, particularly re the Maycocks as it is a somewhat unusual name. Thank you again.

Can anyone tell me what a Full Baptism is? One of my G G G grandfathers, in Whitnash in Warwickshire, was baptised initially in November 1801 and, added to the same record, is a further note that he received a Full Baptism in June 1802. Google tells me that it usually refers to be submersed but that cannot be right, can it?
Thank you.

Thank you again everybody for taking the trouble to shed light on this. I am constantly amazed by how much you learn from "doing" family history. Thank you

I thought I posted a Thank you yesterday but I can't see it, so, Thank you for your pointers.
Would you indulge me further? If neither the householder nor the enumerator were given guidance back then as to what was or wasn't an "Occupied Room", how would they decide what to count? I'm guessing that most dwellings would be a minimum of "two up and two down", so how would they know to count only two of the rooms? Would it just be reliant on common sense, e.g. a bedroom and a downstairs front room would count as occupied?

Many thanks for the details, very much appreciated.

I believe that the 1891 census was the first to record the number of Rooms Occupied in a dwelling. Does anyone know exactly what this means? Some of my ancestors lived in Hampton Lucy in Warwickshire and an amazing number of people lived in dwellings where there were only TWO occupied rooms. I would have thought that, as a minimum, a dwelling would be "two up and two down", so which rooms counted as occupied - a bedroom and a kitchen/dining room?

Emily Gibney is not a relative that I know of

Family History Beginners Board / Liverpool Ford Cemetery Burial Areas

I have found maps and indices of the main burial areas in this cemetery, e.g. area SP, LW etc. Within these burial areas are the individual plot and their numbers. I have two queries -
1. Does anybody know what the letters re the burial areas mean?
2. I have a burial record for a GG grandmother who was buried on October 11th 1876. The plot number appears to be SP293 - copy hopefully attached. However, if this is the correct plot number there is now a gravestone there for Emily Gibney, buried in November 1876. Any thoughts on this?
Thank you
