Look up at Bradford Archives
« on: Tuesday 24 January 23 15:53 GMT (UK) »
This is a long shot but just thought I would ask.

I am looking for 3 births with parents name in the Shipley area.

I have been advised by Bradford Archives that there is a register of children in the township of Shipley 1774-1858 (36D81/1/2) that will possibly have the information I require but I can't get into Bradford  and can't really afford for them to do the search.

The children I am looking for are Robert Slingsby 1814, Samuel Slingsby1816/17 and George Wilkinson Slingsby 1818/1819 all three according to census were born in Shipley

Hope this site can help me.

I've sent you George Wilkinson Slingsby details from Ancestry - 1818 - born 3 March 1818, baptised 11 January 1839  :o

The baptism for Robert is also on Ancestry - if you haven't got access to Find My past - details exactly the same, as per Emeltom's message.
Places of interest;
Lancashire, West Yorkshire, Southern Ireland, Scotland.

Thank you

I am beginning to think Samuel Slingsby wasn't registered anywhere.
