View Full Version : Baptism records - Shropshire

24-03-2005, 10:15 PM
I have hit 'my' brickwall with my GGGrandfather William BURTON. I have his marriage cert 1853, but alas no Fathers name on it. On various census's he was born c 1834, Madley, Shropshire. I have managed to find him in 1851, but only as a lodger. I would dearly love to find at least his Mother's name. Can anyone direct me to where I could look next? Where would I find the baptism record?
Many thanks

Sorry I can't help with baptism records, but I have Pigot's 1828/29 Shropshire Directory. There is no BURTON listed as a trades person in MADELEY, but there are two in BROSELEY just across the River Severn.
The two towns are included as one location, along with Coalbrookdale, Coalport and Ironbridge.
Both are JOHN BURTON. One is described as 'fire-brick maker' and the other as 'maltster'.
Hope this may be some help, FredP.

I have checked my transcription of Madeley 1841 Census but there is no William Burton.

Thank you for looking. I still have not found anymore info for William Burton's birth.
All the best
