Mary or Maria Chant
« on: Monday 10 May 21 08:22 BST (UK) »
Hello everyone I hope you are all well. Trying to connect the right family to Mary or Maria Chant. Baptised 12/11/1721 South Petherton Somerset, she was married to a John Parsons bap. 10/12/1725 North Petherton Somerset on the 4/6/1749 North Petherton. Her father was John or pronounced Johannes Chant on her baptism, I think that her burial is 25/4/1777 Wincanton Somerset, would like help to make sure of my records, her mother etc. :-[

Regards,
Janet :-\

Thank you emeltom for your quick reply, I was making sure I had the right person, so many of this family include Mary or Maria, and I am unsure with Johannes or Johannis as a first name. :-[

The only other Chant baptisms in S.Petherton at the time are all listed as father being "Johannes" -John...the vicar seems to have "Latinized" names where he could.
John Chant married Elizabeth Perren -of S.Petheron- at nearby Martock on 30 March 1714. Mary Chant has a sister baptised as "Betty".

The marriage at N.Petherton has the surname transcribed as Cha**** or Chaney on FindMyPast records and as North Petheron is about 20 miles away from South Petherton, maybe this needs checking? .Off to work now- hope this is of use!

It's definitely Chaney (image on Ancestry).
