Yes, very considerate :).

The non-conformist records can be so illuminating.  For one of my Baptist families the minister had written complete details of the family right down to the name of the mother's father (i.e. the child's maternal grandfather) every time and also gave the name of the midwife and nurse attending at the birth of each child!  :o ;D

Here is one of mine from Gateshead, County Durham. Barbara Routledge was the illegitimate daughter of Isabella Routledge. Father unknown. Later Isabella I believe lived with, and had eleven children with a George Dawson, but never married him after the birth of Barbara. He is the vicar trying to sort things out after the funeral with his comments in the Parish Records.

1872:"Buried  28 Apr 1872 Barbara Dawson, of Sheriff Hill, age 20, The name Dawson was on the coffin plate, I learnt on 29th April that the death was registered as Barbara Routledge". St. John, Gateshead Fell Parish Records.

The clergyman at Blackrod in the late 18th century was VERY helpful to some of us. Here's a baptism entry from 30th March 1788:
"Valentine 4th son of Thomas Walls of Blackrod, collier by Betty daur of George Doughty was born Mar 1."
Looking at ALSTON in south Ribble area, ALSTEAD and DONBAVAND/DUNBABIN etc. everywhere, HOWCROFT and MARSH in Bolton and Westhoughton, PICKERING in the Whitehaven area.

Yes really helpful  :)

I was given the opportunity to view all the records in one parish church, which included the local policeman's note book, the parish day book, invoices etc and found a village census(in between national census) which is the ONLY primary record I have found which confirms which 'sister' had an illegitimate child who always lived with her gran, sisters in question were Eliza and Elizabeth close in age, worked together in service and seemed to use the same name 'Eliza' on records. On this village census 'Gran' had written all her children's names, who they married, where they lived/where they were/who they worked for inside and outside the village and how many children they had as well as who the mother of the child was ( her married name) AND who the father of the child was.
It only really became valuable when I was contacted by another researcher the other side of the world who was the direct descendant of this child and it was lovely to be able to send her a copy to enable her to continue on her FH journey, not only with the correct mother but also with the real father.

Yes, I've got some like that, it took me ages to sort out what it meant, especially as they all seemed to have had similar names.
