Re: Deborah Corlett
In Response To: Re: Deborah Corlett ()

Hi Bill,

Unless an IOM parish is given for her on one of the censuses it is going to be very difficult to find her family if there is no baptism for her.

I have Maughold parish register transcripts, and there are three Corlett families having children bapt around that time, but no sign of a Deborah. In fact there are only two Deborahs in the whole bapt register up until 1849.

Previously unknown children often appeared in wills or decrees, so it isn't unusual not to find a baptism.

See: http://www3.telus.net/lawson/wills/corl-will.html for a number of transcribed Corlett wills.

Do the names of her children provide any clues? A second name that could have been taken from a surname?
