    Looking for a baptism of Elizabeth FINCHETT / FINCHARD about 1788

    Elizabeth married George Carter 10 July 1810 St Peter's Church Wolverhampton
    FMP have the surname transcribed as FLINCHETT but looking at the image it is more like FINCHETT (see thread https://genealogy-specialists.com/threads/may-be-gone-some-time.11209/ )

    She appears on the 1841 census with George and several children her given age is 43 (985/7/9/11)

    Then in October 1846 she registers the death of George using her maiden name of FINCHETT.

    6 Dec 1847 she marries Thomas HUGHES St Peter's Church Wolverhampton no age given father given as Robert FINCHARD

    1851 census (2020/447/18) with Thomas and some children from previous marriage age given as 63 place of birth Wolverhampton

    1861 census (2021/10/15) with Thomas age given as 73 place of birth Wolverhampton

    FreeReg have a baptism 6th Jan 1791, at Wolverhampton St Peter, for Elizabeth Finchett, parents Robert & Elizabeth. Could this be relevant?

    :)

    The FreeReg transcriber might have worked from a better copy or from the original? I've done some transcribing for them myself so I know that's possible.
