Welcome to our forum ~ please post your questions below.
I am hoping someone can sort this out for me please? Initial thought is a transcription error.
John Henry Harrop - son of Henry Harrop & Elizabeth Barnsley
Baptised 10.3.1869 St Philips Shalesmoor (along with sister Jessie)
Death 25.11.1868 aged 2
Burial 25.11.1868 Burngreave Cemetery
Parents are in Christ Church Fulwood.
All records obtained from Parish Registers on this site.
You can be confident that the baptismal record is correct. The transcriptions for John Henry & Jessie "Harrob" match the register image here (image 171):
And from https://www.gro.gov.uk/ there is this in the deaths index:
HARROP, JOHN HENRY 1
GRO Reference: 1868 D Quarter in SHEFFIELD Volume 09C Page 229
And then there is in the births index
HARROP, JOHN HENRY BARNSLEY
GRO Reference: 1867 M Quarter in SHEFFIELD Volume 09C Page 323
HARROP, JESSIE BARNSLEY
GRO Reference: 1865 M Quarter in SHEFFIELD Volume 09C Page 319
Indeed, a mystery. Any chance the 1869 baptism was for a 2nd child given the same name?
thank you for clearing that up
The GROIndex has a birth reg in Q4 1868 for Arthur Harrop mmn Barnsley.
Presumably he is the child baptised John Henry in 1869, shortly after the death of his brother John Henry
It looks like Arthur Harrop (mmn Barnsley) was birth REGISTERED around the second week of October 1868, so born 1-2 months before the death of his brother John Henry (25th Nov 1868)
