Village in Warwickshire?
« on: Wednesday 30 December 20 09:36 GMT (UK) »
Hi, all.
This an extract from the Cherington, Warwickshire, Parish Register for 1770. Can anybody identify where Richard Rose is from?

Stowerton?
It's a variant spelling of Stourton.

0.4 miles from Cherington!
(According to Google Maps!)

At first I though Howerton, but on second thoughts agree with KG, it might perhaps be Stowerton (Stourton).

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

Thanks to all three of you.
So it looks as though he's a local lad then.
