Parish record online: where did this age come from?
« on: Sunday 02 December 18 09:36 GMT (UK) »
Iím 99 per cent sure that Iíve found a burial I was looking for in a parish register. It is available online, though obviously I canít say here where I saw it. 3rd May 1812, Tamworth, Staffs., William Lea. He is a very good match to the ďlate William Lea of TamworthĒ of his uncle Richard Leaís 1820 (Shenton, Leics.) will.
The image of the original is unfortunately missing the right hand edge of the page (folded under, it seems), so I can see no age given, though there is a transcript which says he was 35. If this is correct, heíd be the William son of Christopher (Richardís brother), who was baptised in Packwood, Warks. in 1777. Iím surprised how much these people moved about.

Iíd be happier if I could see the age myself or knew where the website transcription came from. The age clearly couldnít have been transcribed from this image.

When I've come across something like that Dave, I have emailed the appropriate Record Office where the actual register is held, and asked if they would be so good as to have a look and see if there is anything written there. They have always been very obliging.
I guess Tamworth registers are at Staffordshire Record Office in Stafford.
Can't hurt to contact them.

Just keep scrolling on through the images ( see the arrow at the right of the page) and you will see a clear image showing the age.

You often find such repeats  with parish records before  standardised forms were introduced.

Unfortunately on the website Iím using it doesnít seem to appear when doing that, in fact the next right hand page suffers the same issue.

of course you can say where you saw it!

I got a mildly slapped wrist the other day for mentioning a commercial site by name, and the moderator deleted my post, so I thought Iíd be banned if I transgressed again. ;D

Thank you. Iíd be surprised if this wasnít right and everything fits, but there just remains that last 0.1 per cent of doubt.
