Ixworth bp PR (original not transcr) - Charles NUNN
« on: Friday 21 August 20 11:25 BST (UK) »
Is there a kindly being out there with access even in these distracted times to the original baptism PRs for Ixworth? Repeat, original not transcriptions!

I am looking for Charles Nunn, the son of Samuel Nunn and Mary Beach.

Saml and Mary married in 1765 at Ixworth Shelland and moved to Ixworth. They had maybe 9 identifiable children, all bp Ixworth, between 1766 and 1782, none of them named Charles. According to transcriptions, two of the children were named George, bp 13 Sept 1772 and 3 March 1782. I have been able to kill off George 1772 (he died in 1849 age 76: it's his will that identifies a brother Charles, as well as other better-documented relatives). But what then of George 1782... I first thought it might be a case of a hidden private baptism of George in 1772 followed belatedly by his public bp or reception into the church in 1782. Hmmm.
Now, another bright idea. I wonder if one of those Georges is in fact Charles, misnamed either in the transcriptions or - perish the thought - in the baptism register itself. Please could sks doublecheck this in the original Ixworth PR for Sept 1772 and March 1782?
Many thanks
