Notts Archives - Why Soloman HARRIS?
« on: Tuesday 11 January 11 13:05 GMT (UK) »
According to the A2A website Notts Archives holds a record containing the following:-

Copy of entry in Cirencester parish register dated 25 Nov 1676 recording the baptism of Solomon Harris, son of William Harris.

Soloman's family came from Gloucs, and he lived in London, so why would Notts Archives hold his baptism record in the Sherbrooke of Oxton files?

Looks like it's just a copy of the baptism entry - it looks like the collection is something to do with property, though, as it's in the collection of title deeds.  Solomon Harris must have had something to do with property in Hackney as that seems to be what that part of the collection relates to.

If you're really curious, ask Notts Archives to see if they know the provenance of the collection and why there is a copy of a baptism entry in with the title deeds.
