FAIRWEATHER baptism lookup Eye 1776
« on: Saturday 10 August 13 09:15 BST (UK) »
Hi,
In the FamilySearch indexes there is a listing for the baptism of Jane Fairweather d/o Thomas and Sarah, 1 Mar 1776 in the Sudbury ATs. She was almost certainly the daughter of Thomas Fairweather and Sarah Downing who married in Hadleigh on 30 Jul 1775. Unfortunately there are no Fairweather baptisms in Hadleigh. Jane married in Debenham in 1798 and her mother (Sarah nee Downing, wife of Thomas) was buried there in 1801, but there is no baptism for Jane in Debenham. However it seems as if Thomas was buried in Eye in 1824, and (judging by burials) there seems to have been several Fairweather families living in Eye in the 18th century.

Jane is my gggg-grandmother and has been a brick wall for over 5 years.

Would someone be kind enough to check the Eye PRs to see if Jane was baptized there? (Otherwise it's back to the drawing board.)

Thanks to anyone who reads this,
