Hello

I have a connection to Llanfair Waterdine and a problem.  My g g grandfather Thomas BARRETT was born there, but I cannot go any further back to definitely find his parents.  He was born in 1835 and on his marriage certificate to Margaret WATKINS states that his father was also Thomas,   I found a Thomas born to an Ann but christened at Madeley - that seems a long way to go.  Thomas and Margaret are listed on census returns.  Can you guide me now by any chance?  Rose

Hello Rose

Where did you find the Madeley baptism of Thomas, son of Ann?  I am not seeing this.

There is a baptism on the Find my Past web site, taken from the original parish register, of Thomas BARRET (recorded with one 'T') the son of Ann, a servant on 29 July 1832 at Llanfair Waterdine.  No name is given for the father.

Hi Mike - thanks very much for your reply to my query and I amsorry to be so long in getting back to you.

I found the record of a Thomas Baratt's baptism on the Shropshire baptisms transcript P180/A/2/5. Mother was listed as Ann and father Thomas.  On his marriage certificate to Margaret his father was stated as Thomas but Thomas was such a common name so it may not be the right one.  I will keep digging!  Many thanks   Rose
