Finding a birth record for Friend Daniel b.1786

Postby bobukiah » Wed Jan 30, 2019 4:20 pm

Hi there. I've been struggling to find a birth record for Friend Daniel (my 4x great grandfather), who was born in or around 1786 in Rotherhithe according to the 1841 and 1851 censuses. I also have his death certificate. The censuses say he was born in Rotherhithe, Surrey, but I cannot find a record for this and so cannot work out who his parents are. I also don't know of any brothers or sisters of his, although I feel sure there would have been some.

On ancestry, severral other people have named his parents as William Daniel (from Sussex) and Susannah Dance (from Rotherhithe). However, I cant find anything that suppors this as they all reference other people's trees.

Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Bob

On Find My Past, there are baptisms in Rotherhithe St Mary for the following children to parents William and Susan/Susanna Daniels. FMP does not appear to have a baptism for Friend Daniel.

Benjamin Daniel, bap 1794
Elizabeth Brappel Daniel, bap 1785
Christopher Daniel, bap 1797
John Daniel, bap 1792
William Daniel, bap 1790

There is this Greater London Burial Index record on FMP. Could he be the father mentioned above?

Thanks very much for all this information - it is genuinely extremely helpful and will allow me to get a bit further back on the side of the family I am most interested in.
