What is her name?
« on: Wednesday 09 September 20 22:19 BST (UK) »
I have a baptism from Birmingham’s St Martin parish registers and I’m struggling to work out the name of Samuel Moore’s daughter, baptised in 1708. It has been transcribed as “Defnah”.

It does look like Defnah - could it be a version of Daphne?

Thanks all, I think it could be Daphne too but she’s not mentioned in Samuel’s will (dated June 1733) so I’m assuming she died young. But then I can’t see a burial for a Daphne Moore.
