Mark Tingle Fairest Marsden, baptism

Mark T F Marsden (of Holdworth in the parish of Ecclesfield) records is on this site and has a birth date of 1825-03-10, parents Ruth & John. May I ask if its possible to check the original to confirm birth date.

Re: Mark Tingle Fairest Marsden, baptism

MARSDEN, Mark T F (of Holdworth in the parish of Ecclesfield, born 1825-03-10).
Baptised November 30, ~, by ~ at Loxley Congregational Chapel, ~.
Parents name(s) are Ruth & John (~).
Note: ~

I have the original but to be honest I think its the Baptismal date that is questionable.

I have to check with Terry on this one.

Loxley was not an easy Church/Chapel to transcribe.

Hi Elaine

The reason I'm asking becouse it seems his parents Ruth Fairest & John Marsden married 2 years after the birth of Mark

FAIREST, Ruth (Spinster, age ~, ~, residing at of this Parish).
Married John MARSDEN, on May 6, 1827, by Thomas Sutton (Banns) at
Sheffield Parish Church, Church Street, Sheffield. Father's name is ~ (~).
Married in the presence of James Ingham,Joseph Hudson.

Re: Mark Tingle Fairest Marsden, baptism


If you note on the baptism record you sent me for Joseph Marsden (Ruth & John) there is a Mark Fairest (Joseph Fairest & Mary Tingle) born on the same day 1825-03-10, baptism 1827-08-20. Just wondering if they are one of the same? sorry to be a pain...

Re: Mark Tingle Fairest Marsden, baptism

Hi Dave,

I have sent you a detailed note and agree with the Mark Tingle being the same child as Mark Tingle Fairest Marsden. So he was indeed baptised twice.

Re the baptismal date if we are not sure of a date the 30th November becomes the default date and there is a note at the top of our Baptismal records page to that effect.

So another one of your Clan sorted out.

Take care Elaine.
