GSSAThe 1820 Settler Correspondence
 as preserved in the National Archives, Kew
 and edited by Sue Mackay

Additonal Information

This is pre 1820 information mainly taken from actual images of parish registers held at the London Metropolitan Archives, Westminster Archives, West Yorkshire Archives, Manchester Central Library, non-conformist registers at the National Archives at Kew (RG4), online parish registers at CityArk or from original images at Family Search. I have also included some information from original images of Scottish old parish registers and English parish records which I have personally researched. Where reference is made to the London Gazette, the full version can be downloaded from http://www.london-gazette.co.uk/

BAKER, Thomas - Extra Data

 

(member of BRADSHAW's Party)

 

National Archives, Kew, London

 

Baptisms, in Cam Congregational Chapel, Gloucestershire (RG8/12C)

 

Rachel daughter of Thomas BAKER and Esther his wife of the parish of Cam in the county of Gloucester was born the 20th October 1817 and baptised Nov 3rd 1817.

Enoch son of Thos. BAKER and Esther his wife of the parish of Cam in the county of Gloucester was born the 16th March 1819 and baptised the 12th December 1819.

 

These two children died just prior to sailing. If Esther's age in The Settler Handbook is correct (25) then it is unlikely that she is the mother of the older children.
