Thomas Archer married Hester Drake 1774 in Painswick Gloucestershire. They would appear to have had all their children in Brimpsfield - William 1777, John 1779, Sarah 1787 and Joseph 1790. I'm sure they had a Daniel as well c 1775 but the only Daniel showing up in the Brimpsfield Registerin that year is a Daniel King, no parents named.

Thomas Archer died in Brimpsfield in 1825 and, according to the age given on the burial entry, he was born c1745. I cannot find a birth for a Thomas Archer circa 1745 anywhere. Can anyone else see something I'm missing.

Note he was not the Thomas Archer born 1746 in Stow on the Wold as that Thomas also died in Stow.

Thanks

Even more interested now to hear where you found it . The BTs for Painswick can be viewed on fs so I've looked and it does not have a Thomas Archer baptised 1741. I've checked from 1740 - 1743 and nothing.

On Ancestry, Emeltree.

I searched UK parish records for Thomas Archer 1745 then pressed the highlighted Gloucestershire on left hand side and he is half way down page. Maybe the Tho instead of Thomas throwing your search. Original page is there too.

Just looked at the original which says son of Elis. Others on same page say son of and daughter of man's name. Not sure why A have decided Elis is the mother. It could be a man's name too?

I don't subscribe to Anc so that's why I didn't find it. Elis could be either Ellis or Elisabeth unfortunately. However it was quite common to state that the child was base born if only a mothers name is given.

Is the version on Anc the Parish Register because, as I said, I cannot find it on the Bishops Transcripts for Painswick so perhaps it was missed off in the copying.

Thanks

Think it is, send me your email if you want me to send you the original. I think it is a man, as you say would usually say single mother or something.
