Samuel Carter look-up - Stratton on the Fosse
« on: Saturday 22 February 20 21:10 GMT (UK) »
Greetings, searching for birth info on Samuel Carter, possibly born at Stratton on the Fosse ~1710, as well as any info on his siblings.  Samuel Carter married Mary Flower at nearby Chewton Mendip on 5 Feb 1732. 

Samuel's possible father is a Samuel Carter, baptized at Stratton on the Fosse 24 Sept 1671. Samuel Carter the elder died at Stratton on the Fosse 11 Jan 1740/1.  I am missing Samuel the elder's wife's name.  Samuel the elder had a number of siblings also baptized at Stratton on the Fosse.

There are a number of records on Freereg at Stratton-on-the-Fosse, the two you mention plus another burial but no age.

Samuell CARTER   Baptism   24 Sep 1671   Somerset   Stratton-on-the-Fosse : St Vigor : Parish Register

Samuel CARTER   Burial   11 Jan 1740/1   Somerset   Stratton-on-the-Fosse : St Vigor

Samuel CARTER   Burial   30 Oct 1720   Somerset   Stratton-on-the-Fosse : St Vigor : Parish Register

The baptisms 1700 1720 name the fathers as Richard & John but no Samuel.

The only Samuel Carter Baptism I can find on Freereg or Ay is 18 Apr 1717 Midsomer Norton, Somerset. Father William.

On Freereg father Samuel, I wonder if William was the elder brother of your Samuel 1671?

Another record same date notes the father as James just to confuse.

The OPR on A.....y names the father as Samuel but I can see how it might be considered to be James on transcripts.

Thank you ColC for the info above.  My records also suggest William Carter, b at Stratton 1664, is the brother of Samuel Carter (1671-1741) - see below.  I am also searching for the wife of the latter Samuel, possibly married at Stratton on the Fosse ~1690-1710. 

Siblings (all born at Stratton) of Samuel Carter (1671-1741) include: William (b 1664), Richard (b 1665/6), Alexander (b 1667), John (b 1674), and Sarah (b 1676/7).

Samuel Carter (1671-1741) is the son of Samuel Carter, b at Stratton 1642, buried at Stratton 1720.

ColC: I followed your Free Reg lead on Samuel Carter (son of Wm), b at Midsomer Norton 9 Apr 1717.  However, these same records also show Samuel Carter, son of Wm, buried at Midsomer Norton 4 May 1718.
