England / Baptised twice?
« on: Tuesday 11 July 06 08:38 BST (UK)  »
Has anyone else come across double entries for baptism?
I have found in Family Search what I believe to be baptisms for the same child
Jane Smith 2 Nov 1760 parents Francis/Alice Preston on the Weald Moors, Shropshire (C035142)
Jane Smith 2 Nov 1760 parents Francis/Alice, Wellington,Shropshire (C037522)
If I am right Francis and Alice m in Edmond Shropshire and had other children baptised in Preston on the Weald Moors, Shropshire They also had one son baptised in Wellington only Jane has the double entry. I think Alice nee Munlow was born at Wellington.
I suspect that they were living in Preston on the Weald Moor but had their first child Jane baptised at the mother's family home and the baptism  has been recorded in the Preston on the Weald Moor register. What do you think?

Many thanks Mo
That's what I'd seen in Free BMD but the banns are for John so I really need to confirm the name with the register. I'm hoping the father's name will also be given as that could be the clue to line back!

This is interesting re the Cornwall to Co Durham migration Chris Pomeroy has written an article Some history: how the Cornishmen came to Cramlington (adapted from an article by Kath Fenwick and Ann Ray)

Also from "...Thousands of families took to the road every April from 1809-1844 and 1864-72 with all of their humble belongings on a hired flat-cart, with or without a pony. Then the music stopped, the new bond was 'signed' (usually with a cross) by the working members of the family and the new life began. Many clans moved from pit village to pit village every year or whenever the urge struck them. That is why it is so difficult to keep track of the movements of one's mining ancestors. The great hope of amateur genealogists is to find some of their ancestors who actually stayed put for twenty years or more and who are therefore mentioned in successive censuses in one place."
Hope this interests you
I find it very usuful insight only hope mine weren't strike breakers!

Thank you Maryanne,
Yes I have James and Sarah's marriage but not Sarah's birth. I also have James' baptism along with five siblings his parents were John RULE and Catherine BRYANT who m 8 Feb 1752 Philack John s of another John was bap Gwinear 1731 but I haven't found Catherine's parents nor who the oldest John married.
If you come across any of these please let me know
Unfortunately I haven't got a James c1800/1 either, my James has to my knowledge Sarah 1782 Catherine 1789 Catherine 1793 and Elizabeth 1795 no boys so no James All these in Gwithian no d of either James or Sarah has been found so it is possible they moved and possibly had a James else where again I'll keep in touch if any thing turns up

From an answer to my post Brecon Somerset connections on Somerset board by Annie RN
"I too have found several family members moving to and from Midsummer Norton and Monmouth.  I went round Radstock local museum recently and saw an advertisement offering free oilskins and other inducements to miners who moved to Wales."
Yes a bed sack would be easy but surely they needed pots and pans to make food on the journey and blankets and the family Bible and...
