Comberton PR lookups - AMPS
« on: Friday 13 January 06 22:10 GMT (UK) »
Trying to confirm the following baptisms in Comberton. These are from member submitted entries in the IGI, but don't quite look right.

1. Hannah Amps  Bap. 10 MAY 1754 Comberton
2. Elizabeth Amps  Bap. 09 NOV 1755 Comberton
3. John Amps  Bap. 02 JAN 1757 Comberton
4. Alice Amps  Bap. 17 JUN 1759 Comberton
5. Mary Amps  Bap. 22 MAR 1761 Comberton
6. Joseph Amps  Bap. 17 OCT 1762 Comberton
7. William Amps  Bap. 22 APR 1764 Comberton
8. Hannah Amps  Bap. 10 MAY 1767 Comberton

They are children of John and Mary (Purser) Amps.

John and Mary were married 26 may 1755 in Swavesey, so the 1st Hannah would seem to be incorrect and the date looks suspiciously similar to the second Hannah.

Can anybody verify?

Thanks,

Hi Kent,

The dates given match the BVRI 2nd edition (incomplete), which of course is published by the LDS.

I could not find a Hannah in 1754 though, Swavesey does not appear to be covered.

The film number if you wish to have a look at the childrens entries  is FHL Film 1040454     1665 - 1876

Hope this may help.

Kind Regards,

Frances :)
