baptism ely, H. trinity look up please
« on: Tuesday 07 February 06 21:02 GMT (UK) »
Hi, living in the Netherlnads makes UK research difficult!
If someone could lookup the details of the baptism of Mary Gotobed. Ely, Holy Trinity in 1831 - daughter of Thomas and Sarah, I would be really grateful. The index indicates that there is more than the nomeal information in the parish record - I am curious.

Thanks!

Tabitha,
I'll have a look for this next time I'm at the CCRO, unless someone comes up with the goods before then.  Won't be before next week, though...

Thank you very much - it would be appreciated. After 15 years of research, looking for my great great grandmother's family - I think this might just be her sister!

Tabitha,
I managed to look this up today, and the GOTOBED's were obviously well named, as its a very prolific surname amongst these Ely baptisms.  In 1831 there were six separate GOTOBED families having their children baptised.  No extra details for your entry, I'm afraid, in the transcript which simply states:
30-03-1831: Mary GOTOBED daughter of Thomas (bricklayer) and Sarah o.t.p.
That's all...
Keith

Dear Keith

Thank you for looking this up. The Thomas I needed was a builder and so even this little detail of bricklayer on this entry helps to confirm that this is the right line. I think I need to now invest in Ely microfiches! I do appreciate your efforts.
