    I search Familyserch for John Bridgeman, wife Mary, Essex and got a really weird 'hit'. John Bridgeman, residence Suffolk christening date 1 Jan 1730; christening place

    "The Parish Register of Joham, Co. of Cambridge, England"

    I cannot find a Joham on Googlemaps, Cambridge has no parish by that name nor does Suffolk. Any thoughts??


    ps: making the most of a day at home with no interruptions as OH has a snotty cold and is lolling on the sofa next door. :rolleyes:

    Could it be Soham in East Cambridgeshire?

    I would have gone for Soham, I know of it simply because several times people with the same name that I'm looking for in Essex I also got some in Soham. :D

    I think I was too caught up in the chase to even consider Soham, poor old bat!
