A baptism for Ann/Annie? Not on FS.

Lots of THURSTON baptisms in Norfolk on FreeREG but can't see one for Ann.

Not ideal, but something to ponder..

There is this submitted bap in the IGI..
"25 July 1840
Postwick, Norf., Eng."

Using that date there is this 'select birth/bap'
Anne Thonton
Baptism Date: 25 Jul 1840
Place: Norwich, Norfolk, England
Parents = James Thonton & Sarah
FHL Film Number: 1526583

I suppose July 1840 is a fair assessment of the birth/bap, given Ann/e was 11 mo. in the 1841 census [June 1841].
