Oh, meant to add that the first 2 children of John and his wife Betty
were baptised at St Bartholomew's Colne. However, five of the
subsequent children were baptised at the "Particular Baptist, Colne"
according to the IGI (extracted).

>> Did your John Cork marry ? If so, look for his marriage and see if it gives fathers name then you will know. Try the online parish clerk or Lancashire freebmd.
