  10. margreen - John Franklin

    On the marriage certificate ofJohn Franklyn and Jane Judd in 1851 it names the father of John as John Frankyn, Lieutenant in the Army. On a later census he is spoken of as an Out Chelsea Pensioner. They have no record of him. Which army records can I check. The Frankly family lived in Norfolk.

  20. Why would a child NOT be baptised?
