53Re: [stooke] Various Trusham data
- Mar 24, 2014Thanks SteveYou may need to replace the spaces with %20 so try http://www.trusham.com/Census%20data/Census%20menu.htm or just http://www.trusham.com/You’re right about places of birth, baptism and residence. There’s a warning on a Cornish site that vicars covering more than one parish often recorded outlying baptisms, marriages and burials as occurring in their main parish.Martin

I think that because many of them lived between Ashton and Trusham they may
have taken their kids to be baptised in either place, as the mood took them.

I've found some Stookes in Bovey Tracey, but none that connect to those.
