Help needed to find fathers name.
« on: Thursday 17 September 20 06:42 BST (UK) »
I have a copy of a Cornwall parish register for John Huthnance, baptised 26 October 1800. Could some one please decipher the fathers name. All the information is that the father is Henry, but the way the writing is, I am not too sure if that is what is written. If any one can state one way or the other, I would be very grateful

Might it say Mr Henry Huthnance?
Was he Someone?  Compared with the others who donít have Mr


I see also, that the others just say eg son of X & Y Jones

Whereas yours says ďand Jane his wifeĒ

He could well have been. In 1841, his occupation was listed as "Independent Means", and in 1851 as a "Landed Proprietor"

In 1852, there was a advertisement for the leasing of a farm, house and buildings and 42 acres, so it seems he was SOMEONE of note. At this stage, I have not found too much more, but will have to look further, now that you have brought it to mind. ;D

Or . . could he be M R Henry - known as Henry but with two other given names?  The M and R both appear to be upper case.

The name is Henry. I can see 5 children (sons) born to Henry and Jane. The title Mr. also appears on the baptism of the fourth son - Peter Curnow in 1807.
His marriage to Jane Veale was in 1799. Their first son Henry born the same year.

Thank you both for that information.

Having just looked at the information regarding first son Henry, it does appear that it was one of those "quick" pregnancies  ;D ;D  Marriage in February, birth in August :o

I read it as "Wm Henry", i.e a short form of William Henry
Baron (of Blackburn), Chadwick (Oswaldtwistle), Watkins (Swansea), Jones (x3 Swansea), Colton (Shropshire), Knight (Shropshire/Montgomery) , Bullen (Norfolk), White (Dorset)
