Hi Mike - I had a similar problem and also thought of boat people until I found
a child born in Carlisle !. Another possibility is that he was a soldier. They also
move around a lot, like boat people.

> Dear listers,
> I am trying to figure out the circumstances under which my GGGrandfather,
Abraham Hayes BUXTON, came to be christened in Sculcoates on the 26th of April 1818.
> His parents Thomas BUXTON and Catherine (nee COTTERILL) were christened in
Chesterfield and Clowne respectively. They married in Clowne in 1815 and Abraham's
older brother Isaac was christened there in 1816.
> Can any lister tell me if Sculcoates would have been a conveniently located
place of worship for families associated with the canal traffic of that period?
> I hope someone can help me find the answer,

> NB. To pre-empt any adverse comment I advise Yorksgen listers that I have
also posted this query to the Canal-People list. If this is contrary to Yorksgen list
rules I will expect to be advised by the list owner. M.B.
