I am hoping that there is someone on this forum who can advise me with a UK parish birth record from 1700s that I am having difficulty deciphering.
The word that names the father's...
Turns out this C R wasn't the one I was needing, so here are the details:
Caroline Robinson died March 1901 at Bradford, Yorkshire - age 80 at death.

Thanks for sorting that so quickly, Pam - Ancestry does certainly put us through some hoops at times!
It wasn't so much the spelling of his name, as whether it was entered as Whitehead, or Benson....

Thanks for your prompt reply, Pam - your explanation is very detailed. My lack of knowledge of the London boroughs was a major missing link in this process. I also sometimes find navigating around...

I am interested in finding out the conditions of being declared bankrupt in UK in the 1840s. My 3x great grandfather was placed in this unfortunate position, losing all his property and...
Thank you a thousand times, Leslie!
Yes, it was my comment.
Now I have that document saved to my computer for ever more.
Some time back I learned to save the web link for every bit of research...
I've not heard of that facility, Lesley. Is it something for me to make use of in the future, or will it find pages I've looked at in the past?
Thank you for your response.
