Little Wilbraham in Cambridgeshire is a small village just outside of Cambridge UK, and a short distance from Great Wilbraham and Fulbourn. There is a very old church there, St. John's.

Question: When it comes to looking for Parish Records 1700-1800, what Parish is Little Wilbraham part of, or is it a standalone?

I'm sure this is a very naive question, but I can't seem to find a definitive answer where I've looked ...

Hi Benny:

Yes, I think so. Certainly many in Fulbourn, just a stone's throw away, and I suspect that my GG GF William CLARKE was born at Little Wilbraham around 1777ish to a William CLARKE. When I do searches that seems to be a logical family. But can't confirm just yet.

William CLARKE
b c1777 ? at [blank] to [blank] and [blank] (not in St Vigors or All Saints)
m. 1800 to Mary HANCOCK in All Saint's, Fulbourn
d. Jun 23, 1834, aged 57, buried Fulbourn. (All Saints)

Cheers,

Colin

Thanks for both hints, Dave.

Not sure which way to turn ... give or take a year or two, his baptism/birth should be ~1777 based on Age at Death.

William and Mary's marriage 1800 at All Saint's Fulbourn was one of those poorly recorded affairs which tells me the witnesses but not the parents or the grooms birth parish. They are OTP. When William was buried, he was also OTP of course.
(from the CD)
1800
Sep 15 CLARK [BT CLARKE] William (x) bac otp
HANCOCK Mary (x) sp otp
wits: William jun HARVEY, Chas DAWSON

I believe Dawson was the Verger - he appears in almost every record for quite a while.

I suppose I will have to get to an LDS an order some fiches/films.
