Baptism look up - Headington
« on: Sunday 02 December 18 18:21 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone please help with a baptism look up in Headington around 1811 for a Mary Harris.

On the 1851 census she has her birthplace as Hoddington, Oxfordshire. I think its a bad transcription or perhaps the enumerator didn't now the place so guessed the spelling. Unfortunately, she died in 1850. Sorry, tht should be she died in 1860

Thanks, emeltom.

The original of the 1851 census looks like Hoddington, I think the Headington baptism looks favourite Deddington is a lot further out from Hurley, Berks which is where Mary was living in 1851 (then Mary Horwood). Plus, she named her first child Jane.

If it isn't too cheeky, can I ask if Thomas & jane had any more children in Headington, and if there is a marriage there for them?

Thanks for your help.

Thanks, Steve.

That will give me something to get my teeth into. She was the wife of one of my Brickwall-Horwoods (its such a longstanding brickwall that I've decided to give them a doube barrelled name!!).
