Baptism

I have not been able to find a baptism record for Elizabeth Ann CHESHIRE in Stockwell, Surrey, there appears to be a gap in the baptismal records for St Mary’s Church, Lambeth, Surrey for the year 1811.

When searching the baptismal records for other children named CHESHIRE in the same parish, I found the following siblings for Elizabeth: Mary Sophia baptised 29 September 18056, James baptised 17 April 18087, John baptised 26 June 18148, and Mary Ann baptised 27 July 18179.

When I added these siblings to my tree, my Ancestry ThruLines updated to show that I had DNA matches to the descendants of 2 of those siblings: Mary Sophia and James CHESHIRE.

The CHESHIRE siblings all have links to each other in different records I have found which further confirms their relationships:

  1. Elizabeth Ann CHESHIRE was a witness on Mary Sophia’s Marriage to William HEDGER in 182810.
  2. John CHESHIRE’s son John CHESHIRE Jnr. lived with his uncle James CHESHIRE after his father’s death in 184911.
