Margaret Titterington born about 1776, Clapham help please
« on: Saturday 10 October 20 17:54 BST (UK) »
Please can anyone help?
I know that Margaret Titterington was born about 1776, Clapham. But there are 2 possible baptisms:
1. on 10/6/1775 with father: Robert
2. on 15/2/1776 with father: Robert
Please is there anyone in a position to look up these baptisms in the parish register, to see if there is any more detail, which might enable me to see which was the correct one?
Thanks,
Kit

The Margaret baptised in 1775 - Robert was shown as of Keasden Lane.

In 1776 Robert was of Borrow Read.

(If I am reading the place names correctly).

There are at least the following children baptised at Clapham to a Robert Titterington;

1766 Ann - Reasdon Lane
1769 Mary - Green Gill
1778 Richard - Lankland??
1778 Robert - Reasdon Lane
1783 Richard - Reasdon Lane

This seems really odd, as there are such gaps. There may be others though, whom I have missed. If you find a marriage the girls names may help, as one of them may be named after the mother.

A Robert Titterington, Farmer of Reardon or Keasdon died aged 73 of Infirmity on July 31 1806. Buried at Clapham.

So where I have shown Reardon - could be Keasdon!

Hi Pennines,
Thanks very much for your kind help and wonderful data.
I'm really hampered on this as A*try does not have the parish records for Clapham or the surrounding parishes.
According to Trees, there were 2 marriages for a Robert Titterington, both in Clapham:
1. on 5/11/1757 to Agnes Hardy  and
2. on 1/4/1775 to Mary Thistlewhaite
The trouble is is that both produced Margaret born about 1776!
And you're right, the name is Keasden (Lane)! But, as yet, I haven't been able to find Borrow Read.
Thanks again, you've been brilliant!

Kit - I've been finding the Clapham registers (filmed copies) on Find My Past actually.

On the face of it -- one Robert lived at Keasden for years, whilst if there was only one more Robert - he moved about!

Unless anyone comes up with something beforehand - I will do more exploring of the Clapham records tomorrow.

(If you know Margaret's married name - and a Robert left a Will - she may be named in it under her married name - just a thought). We know one Robert's death year so that's something else I can check tomorrow if not found beforehand.

haven't been able to find Borrow Read.

Think this is Borran Head, as in this burial*,  but I still canít find it in reality.

* was going to attach a screen shot, but this is a look up board. You will have to take my word for it  ;D
currently concentrating on a number of Staffordshire families.

Kit - I'm afraid I haven't done very well on my Titteringtons of Clapham hunt.

I cannot find a Will for a Robert Titterington (although that doesn't mean to say there wasn't one!)

1733 There was a baptism of a Robert Titterington, son of John of Keasdon.

The only marriage in the middle of the 1700s at Clapham was 9.11.1757 between a Robert Titterington and Agnes Hardy. Robert shown as a Webster.

Baptisms then started with a father Robert - in 1758 with a John, son of Robert of Keasdon, Weaver.
Then several more in the Clapham Registers but with Roberts from different locations.

I am hoping I have picked them all up this time!

1760 William of Birks - father Robert, a Weaver.
1763 Agnes of Birks
1766 Ann of Keasdon Lane
1769 Mary of Green Gill
1775 Margaret of Keasdon
1776 Margaret of Borran Head
1778 Richard of Lanckland??
1778 Robert of Keasdon
1780 Betty of Keasdon
1783 Richard of Keasdon
1786 Robert of Eldroth Lane
1788 Christopher of Middlebar
1790 Mary of Austwick

(The father was Robert in all cases with no mother's name shown)

Burials

1784 Agnes wife of John.
1816 Nanny of Keasdon aged 81

(In addition to the Robert given in a previous message).

So I am completely stuck and frustrated -- as I am sure you must be. I am so sorry not to be able to help -- I do hope someone 'brighter' than me can assist.
