Hi Henk, All the baptism info on your WILTSHIREs came from the original
PRs by way of a transcription of them by the Wiltshire Family History
Society. The marriage of Robert and Eleanor, I find I can't prove at the
moment. I will try and find out though.
In Urchfont, there is no suitable baptism for Robert ( one was baptized
in 1744, would he have married at 11?). However in the PRs of Stert
which abuts Urchfont to the north there is this baptismal entry:
1715, Jul 24, WILTSHIER, Robert, s of Thomas & Susanna at Crooks Hill.
Would you like Johns' sisters and his children's info?
