Baptised or buried?
« on: Tuesday 28 August 18 21:13 BST (UK) »
I'm looking for Sarah James who was married in Wistanstow in 1754. 

I've found this transcribed entry in http://www.melocki.org.uk/salop/Wistanstow.html
1730/1  Mar. 24. Sarah, d. of Thomas James, of Whittingslow & Mary ... bur.

But there's no corresponding baptism, so I'm wondering if it could be a mistranscription and this is actually a baptism.  This Sarah would tick all the boxes, and her siblings fit the family name patterns.

I see that F.M.P. has an image for this entry - does anyone know if this comes from the PR or the BTs?  I don't have a subscription at the moment so can't take a look.  Wouldn't mind paying for a month's access but that option doesn't seem to be on offer now.  :(

Am I right in thinking that the PRs are at Shrewsbury and the BTs at Hereford RO?  Not that I'm likely to get to either very soon.
