A very warm welcome to the parishregister September newsletter. Obviously you're all desperate to know how I got on in the marathon, so I'll get straight to it.......4 hours and 7 minutes!!!! Although, of course that's not the whole story; in actual fact I ran more than the required 26.2 miles! Anyway, more of that later. What have I got for you in this month's newsletter? Well, another new database, another new CD and an old favourite returns to the book department; East Enders' Postcards
This month: St Dunstan Stepney 1641-1652 There are over 10000 entries to search in this latest in a series of St Dunstan databases. If you happen to be looking for anyone with a surname of: Clark, Green, Hall Cooke, Evans, Cole, Ellis, Jones, King, Martin, Matthew (or variations of), Moore, Taylor, Thomas, Stevens/Steevens or Wright you won't be disappointed as these are amongst the most popular. Remember I had a fascination as to why they called it Bednall Green, well in this period although most entries were still spelt this way, they have started to spell it another way, Bethnell Green, most interesting eh? Also of interest is the fact that looking at the addresses, people seemed to come from many neighbouring parishes to have their children baptised in St Dunstans, I suppose reflecting the fact that this is one of the oldest churches. One last amusing thing I spotted was an occupation, which was a Tuft Taffety Weaver!????
Last month: St Matthew Bethnal Green 1799-1819 Wow, what a popular database this was, I lost count of how many of you found relatives in this parish.
