Brittain - which one is the right one?
« on: Friday 03 May 19 22:27 BST (UK) »
hello fellow genealogists. I wonder whats peoples opinions are on my problem.

I have identified two baptisms for my direct relative and i am struggling to know which is the correct one and therefore the correct family going back.

Elizabeth Brittain Baptism 06 Jun 1796 Hacconby Father James Mother Alice
Elizabeth Brittain Baptism 30 Oct 1796 Aslackby Father Robert Mother Mary

Confirmed facts -

 - 1851 census - birth place as per picture but I am unable to trace where this is and therefore it doesn't help me choose. residence  New Sleaford, Lincolnshire, England
 - Married Benjamin Pearce Billingborough, Lincoln  - 22 May 1815 - Witnesses William Kelham and George Walton
 - no death identified

any thoughts much appreciated

How about Rippingale as a place?

I found family names help so look for parents' names in Elizabeth's children.

Agree it could well be that, only 12 miles from Sleaford.

thanks for that - it is really useful but continues my dilemma - you will see from the two places where two different Elizabeths were baptised in the same year, thy are so close to each other that I can not really make a reasoned judgement with any certainty which one is mine  - so I think this line has to stop here :(

I was about to point out the close proximity of each and an interesting fact, if you are an Archers fan.

Also, Aslackby is pronounced Azleby.

The only slight clue is that Elizabeth of Aslackby had a sister, Ann.

Ann Brittain married John Williamson in Aslackby on 25th January 1814 and one of the witnesses was Elizabeth Brittain.

If James and Alice are the parents of Elizabeth, which seems likely with the other Elizabeth having been buried in 1819, they lived to a great age.

1841 Census - with son, William, in Stainfield, near Hacconby.

Burials in Hacconby:
James Brittain of Stainfield on 29th March 1844 age 87
Alice Brittain of Stainfield on 6th April 1844 age 86

James possibly baptised in Hacconby on 20th September 1761 in Hacconby, son of Richard.

Richard Britain married Mary Wilson in Hacconby on 6th July 1746.

Possible marriage of James to Alice Smart in Little Bytham on 19th April 1792.

Alice Smart baptised on 28th September 1760 in Little Bytham.
