Frederick C Richardson 1884
« on: Saturday 27 February 21 02:01 GMT (UK) »
I hope someone can help here. I am trying to find the christening of Frederick Charles Richardson who was born on 9 August 1884 possibly in the Kennington area of Kent. Frederick was my grandfather's uncle and I have his date of birth from a family bible/journal which includes the birth dates of all Frederick's siblings and their children.

Frederick's parents were James Keene Richardson and Mary Ann Spice who married in Ashford at the Weslyan Chapel in 1868. All of their children were born in either Boughton Aluph or Kennington and presumably christened in those parishes as well.

Can anyone identify where Frederick was born or even christened?

Alternatively can anyone find him on the 1939 Register or 1911 census. I have found two Frederick C Richardsons in the 1939 Register but they are both in Yorkshire and the dates of birth don't match with what I have.

Many Thanks
Matt

Wow that's fast work! Thank you.

I have christening records for Charles and Frank so know where they were born/christened but I am stuck with Frederick. The East Ashford District covers both Kennington and Boughton Aluph so I'm hoping to pin down his christening as well.

Anyhow thanks again for the info.

Best Wishes
Matt
