which one is it - John Kirby


Active member
I have a John Kirby married to a Sarah ??. Cant find a birth for either of them or marriage details. Have scrolled through original records but some of it is hard to read and could have missed it.

Thoughts please. John and sarah had two children:

John b. 17th May 1696 in Repps with Bastwick, St peter
Elizabeth b.28th May 1693 in as above.

I have found a death for a John Kirby burial date is 5th June 1697. Which one could this be for. It could have been the son who died a year after his birth or it could be the father who died one year after his sons birth. I am leaning towards the father only because normally if it is a child they normally state it somewhere on the record. All I have on the printout is John Kirby 5th June 1697 repps with bastwick st peter, file number 41162 which doesn't give any clues.

Any thoughts or ideas appreciated.
