Ancestree hints can be bogus but sometimes they can be good. I think I found my great grandmother Helen Edgington's 2nd baptism in 1910 in North London.

She was born 17 July 1895 in Oxford, Oxfordshire. Baptised 2nd October 1895 at St Peter Le Bailey, Oxford, daughter of James and Thirza Edgington.

Somehow an Ancestree hint threw up an Ellen Edgington (daughter of James and Thersa Edgington) baptised March 1910at St John Vartry, Stamford Hill, Haringey, London. DOB given as 17 July 1896 (A year out but as well all know, ages are often wrong in records), father a carpenter. Living at 121 Stamford Hill. One the same day, 2 other teenage girls were baptised, also of 121 Stamford Hill, same age group as Ellen. All different parents. I would say they were all servants, wonder why 3 servants to the same house would be baptised on the same day?

By 1911 census, Ellen is in Bexhill, Sussex.
