    I think I've found the Bishop's Transcript, not that it helps. But on the rest of the page the highest number in this column is 7, so I would agree that it possibly means that this is the 4th child of the couple.

    So, seniority must mean order of birth.
    Oh I do hope they really are my 3rd Gt Aunts & Gt. Uncle :)

    My error- didn't look at page top, they are not burials . It says 'formerly' & is actually 'Hinde' his wife -in a faded fashion :(

    There was briefly a very detailed form of baptism which I have seen in County Durham, which gives mother's maiden name and mother's father, plus the birth order of the child, along with the other things you'd expect
    A less detailed version in Norfolk gave mother's maiden name
    Did not realise this also happened in Liverpool

    Sadly today in further searches, I believe Jane died 1793, buried St. Johns, 16 Aug. 1793. All of the Janes seem to have had a very short life.Mary, I'm still not sure about.
    Thomas -as a Shipwright - just may have married Elizabeth & died in 1845.
    1851 -[if that is he]
    Name: Elizabeth Mitchell
    Age: 53
    Estimated birth year: abt 1798
    Relation: Head
    Gender: Female
    Where born: North Wales, Anglesey, Wales
    Civil Parish: Liverpool
    Ecclesiastical parish: Vauxhall
    Street address: Westmoreland St.
    Occupation: lodging house Keeper.
    Registration district: Liverpool
    Sub-registration district: Dale Street

    I had thought Thomas married Elizabeth Davies. Maybe she had married before or her Mother remarried. All these little things keep bobbing up to delay me in finding my ancestors. :(
    Name: Thomas Mitchell -Shipwright
    Gender: Male
    Event Type: Marriage
    Event Date: 27 Feb 1820
    Parish: Liverpool, Lancashire, England
    Spouse: Elizabeth Davies
    Register Type: Bishop's Transcript
    ...........
    These surnames keep on coming into my DNA lines & have me wondering where are they from? Perhaps I'm just now finding where.
    apologies, called away &forgot to press post. :(
