Check entry in Benhall burial register
« on: Monday 04 May 20 12:08 BST (UK) »
Hello
Is anyone able to check a burial entry in the Benhall burial register please? It is the burial of Catharine Pratt at Benhall (St Mary) on 2 Oct 1817. The National Burial Index transcription on Findmypast lists her age as 49, however I am hoping that the age at death has been mistranscribed and was recorded as much older, perhaps 89. I would be very grateful for a lookup, thank you :-) adamjack

Hi adamjack,

The Suffolk Burial Index (Suffolk FHS) lists her as aged 49 Benhall (same as FindMyPast) but coincidently the previous entry is also for a Catherine Pratt in Wilby St,Mary 17-1-1791 aged 89.

I don't see any other  Catherine Pratt entries for Benhall.

Hi Ribbo
Thank you for checking the Suffolk Burial Index. That's a shame. The burial of the Catherine Pratt in 1791 is too early if she was aged 89, as that would make her year of birth circa 1702 which is way too early for my Catherine. I'll have to go back to searching for her burial in Cambridgeshire or elsewhere.
