Birth of Henry Thomas Merritt registered in the Devizes reg. district Q1.1885.  Could he have been born in Allcannings, as this formed part of the Devizes egistration district.

Many thanks Dazey, I did find that one also another, Henry J Merritt Q1 1886 Wilts.Also found him on the 1891 & 1901 census but on both census the T or J are not clear.I would like to try and get a parish record lookup to confirm the parents names

Thanks Ray

Hi Ray

I looked through the PR fiches for All Cannings today (1880-1910) and there definitely is NOT a Henry MERRIT/similar baptised to a George & Mary Jane. I checked that all the pages were there and nothing was omitted. There were a number of other George & Mary Jane children as follows (of All Cannings, labourer):-
-1882 May 30 Fanny Louisa MERRITT
-1883 May 15 Joseph George MERRETT
-1887 July 31 Frederick William MERRITT
-1889 Sep 29 Edith Florence MERRITT
-1894 Bertie Charles MERRETT (occ-baker)
-1895 Ernest Frank MERRITT
-1899 May 21 MERRITT (occ-baker)(bn 29.6.98)
All of these children match up with your 1891 & 1901 census - perhaps if you provide that info on this thread it could help others in your search for Henry's baptism?

Both census' have father George and all children born All Cannings; but mother Mary Jane is showing as born Bishop Cannings. I suppose a long shot might be a baptism in Bishop Cannings.

My two-penneth regarding his middle initial...I do not think it is a J when compared with other J's on the same census pages. If I was a betting (wo)man my £9.25 would be on the 1885 Devizes birth cert  ;)

Cheers

Vaz :)
