There is another baptism in Whorlton- John Scot 2 Jun 1822 - mother Mary and abode is Potto.  And a baptism for Miles Scot 18 Aug 1819 - mother Mary.

Ahh thats brilliant. Do you think then maybe rather than leave a blank for his fathers name on his marriage that Miles has put Miles as his father? The only one not accounted for is James

Thank you Emelton. So it looks like Mary was a single woman and Miles was her brother not her husband and the death certificate is the right one. If it wasnt for the fact that the death certificate had her fathers name James Scott I would still be thinking Miles must be the father and I`d be searchin for his marriage to Mary. Those baptisms have helped enotmously. Thankyou everyone  ;D

Hi, newbie here.
Been on a mission trying to research my 'dead ends' and came across this post.

Read through and.. If Mary is Miles' sister, are the children (I am descended from 1820 Miles and Bessy Hind (maiden name Coverdale)) Mary's or Miles'?

Maybe I missed something. It's been a long day...

Hi Emily

From the Baptisms found by Milmoor and Emeltom Miles Scot was baptised 18th August 1819 in Whorlton mothers name Mary.  His brother Robert Scot was my 3 x great grandfather and he was baptised Oct 1816 in Whorlton mother Mary Scot a spinster abode Potto and John Scot was baptised 2nd June 1822 in Whorlton mother Mary and abode Potto. I think there was also a James Scott born 1817 in Potto.

I also thought that Miles born 1792 was Miles born 1819`s father because his name was on the marriage record to Bessy Hind on ancestry but when I ordered Miles Scott and Mary Scotts death certificates Mary`s certificate stated her fathers name was James Scott but James was also Miles Father so it seems Mary was`nt married
