Duplicate baptism??
« on: Friday 18 March 22 20:19 GMT (UK) »
Hi All
Emma Mary Delasalle was born 9 September 1855 at Islington and baptized 23 September 1855

Emma is on FreeBMD website, but Eliza is not.

Eliza Olive Delasalle was born 9 September 1855, at Islington and baptized 3 June 1855.

The names of their parents, the abode, the occupation of father, etc. are identical.

I can find no other record for Emma Mary, but can follow Eliza through census records to her death.

Are these the same children with just a different name decided upon?

Thanks for your thoughts.

Eliza was baptised 3.6.1860 born 9.9.1855.  Perhaps it was a change of name decision

I will take that as Emma Mary now being Eliza Olive.
Thanks for clearing up a muddle
