Guernsey look up for baptisms please
« on: Friday 05 August 22 19:46 BST (UK) »
If someone is going to the Priaulx library would they do a look up for baptisms in 1810s please?

I have a Thomas Gifford (or Jefford) Dowell and wife Mary who had possibly two children in Guernsey.
Thomas was baptised in 1781 and had his first mainland born child in 1818 in Paignton, Devon. But before that he had a son (named after himself) and a daughter Eliza. In 1841 they are born 1816 and 1815, but possible burials place them in 1812 and 1811.

Eliza was definitely born in Guernsey (as in later censuses) but Thomas junior only appears in 1841, where he says he was born in foreign parts.

Any help on these two would be great, many thanks
