Whilst trawling through some parish records looking for rellies, I came across this entry.

Baptisms. Princes Risborough Parish Records.

Baptism. 17th May 1752. Mary Lacey, daughter of Neighbour and Ann Lacey.


I wonder how many neighbours she had. And how would you trace the Daddy.

Hi

I have seen ancestor with weird names such as Mary Christmas, Annette Curtain, Neil Down, Ben Dover and I have enev come across a baptism in 1830 for a baby whose first, middle and last names are identical to each other.

Here:

THOMAS THOMAS THOMAS

Birth:
23 NOV 1830
Christening:
12 MAY 1831 Bethania Congregational, Upper Tumble, Carmarthen, Wales
Parents:
Father: DAVID THOMAS
Mother: ESTER

Tommy Thrice. Were his parents on whisky when they had his baptised?

Ben
