Eton Parish Records - Mason*Completed*
« on: Sunday 12 August 07 13:47 BST (UK) »
HI,

I am a newbie to this board and am hoping someone can help me, it is a bit of a long shot.

I am looking for a baptism record for a William Mason who's father was called John. On the Census records that he appears on the information regarding his year and place of birth is pretty consistent, his year of birth is about 1802 and his place of birth is down as Windsor, Berkshire. I have looked at the Parish records for Windsor but to no avail.

I have a theory that maybe he could of been baptized in Eton, but even though Eton is across the river, the records come under Buckinghamshire, but it is a BIG Maybe and only a theory.

Does anyone have access to the Eton Parish Records and is able to have a look for me?

Be glad if someone can help.

thanks

Gary

Don't forget that there are two Windsor parishes New Windsor and Old Windsor.  For what it is worth I found my missing Windsor baptism in Clewer.

Hi Gary,

Being as you have visited the record office you are probaly aware that the Buckinghamshire FHS does look-ups at very reasonable prices.........just thought I would mention it.
