Welcome to our forum ~ please post your questions below.
I note Edith Ibbotson's ( on this site) baptism date of 18 November 1877. Having just purchased Edith's death certificate it gives her death as 15 October 1877. May I ask for a check on the baptism date. Regards
Is this the child you are querying??
IBBOTSON, Edith (~, died on ~, at the age of 3).
Resided at Sheffield and buried on 1877-10-18 in Unconsecrated ground;
Grave Number 3 Row 18, Section CNT of Congregational Chapel Cemetery, Loxley.
Notes: ~. Place of Birth: ~. Parent(s): ~.
Yes that's the one.
Will check into it for you.
The best information I can offer regarding.......
IBBOTSON, Edith (of Dun St, born ~).
Baptised November 18, 1877, by John Edwd Johnson at St Jude, Moorfields.
Parents name(s) are Elisabeth & William (File Cutter).
Terry has the original and the baptism seems to be correct. The one prior to Ediths baptism is dated Sep 11th and the one after November 18th.
So I can't change anything.
Is it possible that the Edith baptised on 18th November 1877 is a second child called Edith, named after the one that died in October and so hence the one that died born 1874 and no baptism found yet.
Strange one that especially as there does not seem to be a birth record for her either, But thanks for checking.
Hi John S
Not sure on that one....the next child I have was George Ibbotson born 20 October 1876 at same address 4 Court Dun St.
We should have put a tilde in the baptism date cell.
Can I ask......seeing that Edith Ibbotson was baptised (albeit error on date) would her parents have had to register the birth to allow them to have her baptised?
David, the answer is definitely no.
OK thanks for that.
