William Waddington Pullan - baptism search
« on: Thursday 02 April 15 15:55 BST (UK) »
I have just found a baptism record for William Waddington Pullan (15 Nov 1818) - parents are William & Ann Pullan -baptism took place in Lincolnshire. It seems likely that he belongs to a family I am researching but all their other children were baptised in Bradford. His name really seem strong evidence as Waddington is his mothers maiden name, the date would fit in with other children born. I have found a marriage for him 1839 and this is in Bradford. Is there any thing else I can research to try and prove one way or another that he is the child of my William and Ann Pullan? Why would they have one child baptised in Lincolnshire?

Is there any connection on either side of the family to the location where he was born? A situation like Ann having travelled there to visit family would be possible.

Where was he in the birth order, and is there any gap between him and the other children?

Thanks for looking at my post.
I haven't come across any links with the Lincolnshire area apart from this one baptism. Other children born to the couple are in 1815,1817, 1820,1823,1825,1827,1831,1934,1839 so he would fit quite tidily with being born in 1818 -its just all the other baptisms, census returns and marriages are in Bradford.

Hi Beavances,
What was William senior's occupation? Could it have led the family to Lincolnshire?
I have seen many instances like this, but more commonly either the eldest or youngest child being the odd one out.
I am Australian, from all the lands I come (my ancestors, at least!)

Pine/Pyne, Dowdeswell, Kempster, Sando/Sandoe/Sandow, Nancarrow, Hounslow, Youatt, Richardson, Jarmyn, Oxlade, Coad, Kelsey, Crampton, Lindner, Pittaway, and too many others to name.
Devon, Dorset, Gloucs, Cornwall, Warwickshire, Bucks, Oxfordshire, Wilts, Germany, Sweden, and of course London, to name a few.

All of the info I've seen says he's the son of William & Ann.
As you probably know he married 1839 (aged 20) Bradford & says his father is William a book keeper who also witnessed the marriage.
This is consistent with the Baptism you found & the Baptisms of his later children & the 1841/51 census.
At his birth William Snr. was a wool stapler & as you know married Ann Waddington in 1814.

Fair enough, my mistake.

Long time no see Jim!
