Hi again :) Sorry to be a pest but just a quick query - the baptisms you found are fantastic and do seem to fit my tree but I noticed there are no actual names of the child being baptised on each entry.  I can match with the years on most of them but its guesswork.  Did the records have the childs name?  I hope this makes sense and I'm not being too much of a pain.
Thanks again
Nikki  :)

The name of the child should be given after the date of baptism now, when I copied and pasted the transcription for some reason the name of the child did not get included. It certainly looks like a pretty big family!

Thank you so so much for adding the names of the children - your help has been fantastic and I'm so grateful to you for taking the time to do this for me.  It is indeed a big family isn't it - Isabella must have been a busy lady  ;D.
Thanks again so much
Nikki :)

Is there any possibility that you could look up a baptism for me please? Mary Green bapt 1846. If this is my Mary, there's evidence she died in infancy and parents named their 2nd daughter Mary born 1848. I am hoping that her parents were John and Catherine mn Mahon. If there is an address listed, this would be a big help too. Many thanks
