We've been trying to establish the gender of a Francis Church baptised to Isaac Church (cabinet maker) and wife Anna, on 25 Aug 1817, in Bradford-on-Avon. The transcript we have does not show the gender, nor does it show which Church the baptism occurred, but I'm assuming it was Holy Trinity. Isaac & Anna also had another Francis, baptised in 1810 whom we believe was male, but maybe not. The reason we need to establish gender, is that one of them may have been female and had a daughter Sophia Church, baptised in Dec of 1837 in the same church. Complicating the matter, is on the 1841 Census showing Isaac & Anna's family,(by this time in Wells Cuthbert In), there is a Francis Church 25 years old, shown in the male column of the census. One of my cousins believes this was an error by the enumerator and that this Francis was actually Frances. Is there anyone familiar with the recordings of the baptism records who knows if the gender would have been recorded on the actual record? Thanks for your assistance.
