place maybe in oxfordshire 1747
« on: Sunday 05 December 21 03:05 GMT (UK) »
Hello,
I have a baptism for a John MESSENGER in 1747 at Piddington, but I can't work out which parish it says the parents are from. Kin?eton - Kineton, Warwickshire seems a long way away and there is definitely a letter between the n and e.

Any help or suggestions would be most appreciated.  :)

There's a Kineton in Warwick although it looks to have been written as 'Kinleton'.

When people moved areas, they had to be members of their new parish for a period although I can't remember the duration (someone will know) but it was a safety net if Parish Relief was needed which would be requested from their own/original parish.

It would be an idea to post a bigger snip for letter comparison.

Thanks horselydown, that looks interesting. Will try to find out more about Kirtleton or Kirtlington.  :)

Thanks too Annie. Here's a bigger snip. You can see further down the list of baptisms there is another family of "the parish of Biesley in the County of Gloucester", which makes me think that the MESSENGER family's parish was in Oxfordshire.

I think it must be Kirtleton, thanks horselydown. I should have looked here first.  ::)
