What is the place of abode in this record?
The above is a copy of an entry in a Bishop's Transcript of a baptismal record in Gosforth, Cumberland.
Church of England. Parish Church of Gosforth. (Cumberland, England). Bishop's transcripts for Gosforth, 1676-1892, baptismal entry for William Tremble; microfilm 90622, Family History Library, Salt Lake City, Utah.
The 5th column is the place of abode. Is it Thistleton? There is a Thistleton in Lancashire and in Rutland.
Or could it be a poorly spelt and written Middleton or is it something else? There is a Middleton, Cumbria (Cumberland).
When William Trimble dies in Bruce County, Ontario in 1911, his place of birth is given as Middleton, Co. Cumberland England. His parents were given as Hanse Trimble and Isabella Brownrigg. His date of birth is given as 4 September 1826. The dates are a bit off but are close.
Is this baptism a match for the William who dies in Bruce County?
I have found a possible marriage of his parents but it is of a Isabella Brownrigg to Francis Tremble in the same area in 1826.
Please let me know what you think.
