Subject: [LON] WINDLEY 1816/17-were double christenings (in differentplaces) common?
Date: Sun, 27 Jan 2008 13:53:33 EST

The IGI gives the following 2 dates and places for the Christening of
Elizabeth Sarah WINDLEY:

11 Feb 1816 St John Deritend and Bordesley, Warwick

06 JUL 1817 Saint Mary, Lambeth, Surrey, England

In both cases the parents are Thomas and Elizabeth.

Obviously a coincidence is possible, but it is not a very common surname and
I wonder what the likelihood is of all those same Christian names turning up
by chance.

I only know of the connection with Lambeth, so I am intrigued to see the
other Christening and would be grateful for any suggestions.
