Baptism lookup Middleton Wesleyan CHARLES EASTAUGH/EASTER ca.1793
« on: Thursday 16 May 19 12:11 BST (UK) »
Hello, may I please have help finding the baptism of Charles Eastaugh/Easter who was born, according to census records, abt 1793 in Middleton, Suffolk.    We have not found him in Church of England records in Middleton, and we are wondering if he was baptised in the Wesleyan church in Middleton.  It is possible Charles may be a second name.   His children were called Samuel, William, Charles, James, Robert & Sarah.   Charles married Keziah Chattin in Benhall in 1814.   Samuel was baptised in Sweffling in 1815 and the others in Rendham.   Grateful for any help or advice thank you.

Brilliant David!
Absolutely great job!

Following on from your great find
Nathaniel Estaugh bapt Saxmundham 4 June 1761 s of Samuel and Lydia Estaugh.

Samuel married Lydia Sawing 24 May 1757 at Leiston parish of Darsham
There is an infant Lydia buried at Darsham 8.10.1769 who may be a daughter
I'm guessing a son Samuel born 1758 died 17.4.1829 Bramfield PCC Will mentions daughter Lydia.
Lydia Estaugh born 1731 buried at Bramfield 11.6.1787.
Samuel Eastaugh  buried 26 Jan 1792 at Bramfield age 77 may be Dad.His Will is on Suffolk Archives website.
Sarah Eastaugh buried Darsham 12 Dec 1850 age 88

There's plenty to get your teeth into

Wow!  Since we have had someone look at Middleton records, I was not expecting that!   I know of Nathaniel's marriage and most of these other names, but not how they all fit together.   We have no Nathaniels anywhere in the family so I was doubly not expecting that!   Thank you so much David and ciderdrinker.

You're welcome Shelars. You may also need these Yoxford burials from the Suffolk FHS index:

1807 June 23 Nathaniel EASTOW aged 63

1827 April 14 Sarah EASTAUGH of Yoxford (widow of Nathaniel) aged 86
