1837 Mother of James PAYNE - Sarah ?
« on: Friday 04 September 20 08:02 BST (UK) »
 This one has me puzzled.   Ending -ew ?    K in the middle?  Could it be Askew with a extra flourish at end of the K ?  With surname origins in North Yorkshire !

Cannot find anything more likely for -ew in Devon Marriages database at ukga.org ; although Askew is not listed.

I think GRO opted out because maiden name is indexed as Blank ; thought it was going to an illegitimate birth. Do they do any form of cross checking on supporting records for mothers to see if their transcription is valid?  I have only just discovered that Search GRO Index feature at GRO.gov.org now returns the mother's maiden name. This is saving me a fortune in getting certificates for mother's details.

November 16th (love the "1/2 after 11 o'clock" ) 1837

Sarah Askew
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.

  Thanks.   I agree,  Askew.

 I think I have found her,  Sarah Askew Baptised 19 Feb 1815 Tiverton, from Findmypast.  And there a plenty more Askew in Tiverton, Devon.

 I was initially thrown by its absence from List of Surnames in the Devon Marriages DB (https://ukga.org/search.php?action=list&DB=52). Not trusting that source.

Off to do Email to GRO now to get a correction to their index.

thanks
