In the past, both on Top Dog and on another forum, I have made references to Mary - my 3rd Great-grandmother. Much of what I had developed had been has been added to my 'public' tree but has now been refuted by a person who claims my detail is suspect and so I am going to ask for assistance here and hopefully resolve the issue once and for all. According to Wiltshire FHS Mary was born 2 July 1797. They advised that the image of the baptism register was in poor condition and that the place of baptism and other details could not be ascertained. I accepted this and couldn't get back further. Her later life was quite sad, hence the thread title. My contact has now stated that the baptism was held 2 July 1797 in West Lavington, Wiltshire and her parents were John Draper - a Carter by trade - and Elizabeth [Betty] Sainsbury who were married on 24 May 1795 in West Lavington. West Lavington does not have a OPC and so, having already contacted Wiltshire FHS, I cannot approach them once again. Can anyone assist on this?
