Baptisms in Derbyshire

Postby katebenn » Mon Jan 23, 2017 3:20 pm

I have a marriage of Joseph Payne in 1676 at Mackworth, Derbyshire to a Elizabeth Spicer. I can't find her birth or baptism details any where. Does anyone have any details which could help me locate her?

Also the baptism of Elizabeth Smith who married this Joseph's son also Joseph Payne in 1705 at Alvaston, Derbyshire

Joseph's 2nd wife was Elizabeth Mawkin; married in 1733; assuming she was a spinster (not a widow); I can't locate her baptism either.

Any help please?

Between about 1645 and 1660, there were changes with regards Parish Registers. Under the rule of the Commonwealth, many people disagreed with the changes and also the fees that were then payable. So they didn't have their children baptised. When Charles II was restored to the throne, people went back to the old ways and then had their children baptised. It may be that you have to look for a baptism much later that you would normally.

Mark Herber's Ancestral Trails book puts it as many children were not baptised and some were only baptised when the parish priest returned. Or putting it another way: worst case scenario is that a number were never baptised at all.

Have you checked nonconformist records? My Derbyshire ancestors were nonconformists.

Hello Kate

Do try the Derbyshire Ancestral Research Group. They meet every Wednesday morning at Birchwood Chapel, Somercotes, near Alfreton and have a wealth of Derbyshire records.

I mentioned your post to one of the ladies who runs the group (Margaret Brooksbank) who said it would be fine to give you her telephone number. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to post a link to the page which contains her number but if you search for the "Derbyshire Ancestral Research Group" online, it is contained within the home page.

Good luck with your searches.

I guess you already know "Eliz." Smith's marriage record says she's from the parish of Boulton?
Elizabeth Spicer's doesn't say so I'm guessing she was from the parish of Mackworth where she married.

However, Familysearch says Elizabeth Spicer was married in Kedleston.

Couldn't find their baptisms online, though.
