Full Baptism
« on: Wednesday 28 October 20 17:21 GMT (UK) »
Hi
Can anyone tell me what a Full Baptism is? One of my G G G grandfathers, in Whitnash in Warwickshire, was baptised initially in November 1801 and, added to the same record, is a further note that he received a Full Baptism in June 1802. Google tells me that it usually refers to be submersed but that cannot be right, can it?
Thank you.

I'm assuming that we are talking about John Maycock  :-\   My assumption is that he had a kind of private baptism on 22 November 1801 and was received into church in June 1802. 

It appears to have been the norm in this parish at the time, as nearly every baptism has the same sort of entry in the parish register.

I am open to correction but I think only Baptists  expect full immersion and as an adult .
Anyone converting to The Baptist Church must be baptised by total immersion .
Baptists also believe a child cannot fully realise what are the full implications
of Baptism ,hence adults only .

Ah, I see , do you have the name of the church ?
I am presuming it was not a Baptist Church.?
However I donít know if ,even though adult baptisms are the norm in the Baptist Church ,if poorly infants would be baptised.

The images are under the Church of England baptisms, marriages and burials 1535-1812 on Ancestry for Whitnash, Warwickshire - possibly St Margaret, although no name is given.

Thank you for your comments. I too believe it is St Margaret's church as the only other church appears to be Roman Catholic. On a minor related point, I do know that Jehovah's Witnesses also believe in and use full baptism and I think there may be other faiths that follow the same course. A little more digging methinks, particularly re the Maycocks as it is a somewhat unusual name. Thank you again.

Isnít it more likely that itís an example of private baptism being followed by being received into the church, with the words ďfull baptismĒ on some entries being a misnomer for the latter process?
