Hello thereI do hope you can help me.

 

All I have on my ancester William Kempster is below

 

William Kempster SNR is written in

Last nameKempsterBirth year-Death year1675Death date? ? 1675Burial year1675Burial date18 Jan 1675Burial placeWhitchurchDenominationAnglicanFather's first name(s)WilliamCountyShropshireArchive refererenceP303/A/1/3Page300Register typeCompositeRegister date range1653-1744Record setShropshire BurialsCategoryBirth, Marriage, Death & Parish RecordsSubcategoryParish BurialsCollections fromGreat Britain, England© DC Thomson Family History.

I have no baptism or marriage record for William and I would really like to " sort out" my Kempsters.

Do you hold any records prior to 1675?

I look forward to hearing from anyone on the forum.

Regards

Carolyn

Hello Carolyn

The original parish register, which can be seen on the subscription web site Find my Past, states, "William son of William KEMPSTER [buried] Jan 18 [1675/6]".

Note that at that time January, February and most of March were in the same year as the proceeding nine months which was 1675 in this case but today we would have entered William's burial as 1676.

Hello Mike

Many thanks for this source.

I've contacted Shropshire Archive to ask whether they hold records prior to 1675 in case SFHS don't have these records.

Otherwise I'll go to Find My Past.

Regards

Carolyn
