Benjamin Blackham
« on: Saturday 18 October 14 11:33 BST (UK) »
Does anyone have access to the registers for Wolverhampton St Peter? I am trying to find out if the info that I have for Benjamin Blackham Baptised 16 Nov 1706 and a father Richard is correct, I have looked at the image on FindMyPast but it is not very clear. His name is spelt as Blackom on FindMyPast. Can anyone help?

Thanks   Steve

Hello,I have been to W-ton archives today,and looked at the original baptism.But,they are so old,they are almost impossible to read.However,i looked at the books(transcriptions)and it said-Benjamin,son of Richard Blackom.The original arent in lines,they just seem to go all over the page.Hope this helps a bit.Glen
