Mellis St Mary Parish Registers - EMERSON
« on: Saturday 08 June 19 07:13 BST (UK) »
I have been looking for the baptism of my 5xG-Grandmother Sarah EMERSON and her siblings. I have dates and a possible location and wondered whether some wonderful person could check for me.
The location is St Mary Mellis parish registers.
The Baptisms are:
Sarah Emerson d/o Henry & Amy, 21 Jan 1732/3
Mary Emerson d/o Henry & Amy, 14 Dec 1735
Henry Emerson s/o Henry & Amy, 25 Dec 1737
Mary Emerson d/o Henry & Amy, 19 Mar 1738/9

Thanks to anyone who take the time to read this,

Hello Sue in Australia

Have just looked at the stuff I have for Mellis & surrounding parishes - no bpts unfortunately but my records only go back to 1750 or thereabouts.  However it looks like Henry & Amy may have been buried in the neighbouring parish of Gislingham & there are Emerson marriages in that parish. A Sarah Emerson married Henry Keen of Wetheringsett 25 Dec 1760 in Gislingham, is this your Sarah? 

If it is & anyone is able to check back further it may be worth looking at the Gislingham registers as well. Next nearest parish showing any early Em(m)erson burials in the info I have is Eye about 3 miles east of Mellis.
