Susanna Hopkins, born 1766, married Thomas Leedham in 1790 in Burton upon Trent. Most of their children were baptised at the local Wesleyan chapel, including Ann on 27th August 1797. I haven't found a baptism for Susanna in her infancy but in 1821 she was baptised in the Cherry Street Wesleyan chapel in Birmingham. This record tells us that her parents were "of Birmingham" and there are other connections with Birmingham for this family so the location doesn't trouble me. I can imagine that perhaps she was not originally a Methodist and wanted to formally join her husband and children in that faith? However, the next entry in the Cherry Street baptism register is for her daughter Ann, clearly stating that she is the daughter of Thomas Leedham of Burton upon Trent and was born in July 1797. It gives her mother's name as Elizabeth but I think that is an error, especially as the first attempt to record Susanna's baptism as above was crossed out so the minister was clearly a bit confused? Can anyone suggest why Ann would be baptised a second time as a Wesleyan? I can only think that perhaps she needed proof of baptism to marry and it was easier to get re-baptised than to go back home to get a copy of the certificate for her original baptism? I don't have a marriage record for Ann, btw, nor any other record of her life. Thomas and Susanna were both later buried in Burton upon Trent so had not permanently removed to Birmingham, although some of their children had. Any thoughts on this would be welcome.
