Newbury Parish Register check
« on: Sunday 02 December 18 18:40 GMT (UK) »
Hi

Is anyone able to double check the parish registers (or other registers) of Newbury for a marriage and christening between 1660 and 1685?

I am looking for the christenings of the following people:

John Gray - born December 1669

Hannah Gray - c1670

Mary Gray - c1671

Mary Gray - c1677

Hannah Gray - c1681

According to the notes I have the parents are Robert and Hannah Gray however I can't find any christenings for these children on FreeReg or Familysearch to confirm this.

The first John appears to have been buried on 19 December 1669 and the first Mary seems to have been buried on 12 March 1670/71 - these may be wrong though.

Hannah (christened in 1681) married John Head in 1707 and died in Newbury in 1746/47.

The closest candidate I have found to this Hannah is a Hannah Gray christened in 1687 to Joseph and Sarah Gray. They also had a daughter named Mary christened in November 1670 and a daughter named Hannah born in December 1671.

It would be good to be able to confirm if the parents of the Grays I'm looking for are Robert and Hannah or Joseph and Sarah.

Thanks in advance

Matt
