In later years William Hitch uses the name Lewin but also used the name 'Lewin Hitch', which he was married under. His children were registered under the name Hitch or Lewin Hitch. I couldn't find William's marriage in parish registers but it looks like he may be non-conformist. It would be interesting to see the marriage certificate to see who he names as his father.

I agree it was probably a non-conformist marriage. The page number for William's marriage is 335, and marriages at Woodham Walter (the last parish alphabetically) are page 333.

Today's transcribing has made me laugh already. Look at the bride's father's name, and his occupation. ;D

I think he should have been a "Tent Salesman"  :)

In a Church of England baptism register? I bet there's a good story behind it... I wonder why they wanted to get their child baptised...
