    I've been trying to find a likely- preferably positive baptism of other record for my 6th Gt. G'Mother, Lucretia Masson or similar. She married George James in Dunstan, Somerset in 1720.
    So far the only one I can find is this one in Southwark 1702. Can anyone please decipher the mother's name? It's given as 'Christian' father Luke Mason -a victualler.

    I thought at first that it looks like Chrishan, but never heard of that as a name. But now I'm not so sure.:confused:

    I think it's Christian. I have one way back in Cornwall.

    Thank you both, I saw as did Sis & looking past the annoying loop of the 'd'[and] I can see the beginning of Chris... perhaps it's how the clerk chappy heard the name spoken. I shall have to look for other children of this couple to see if any married & carried on the Mother's name.
    I'm thinking Lucretia may have been named after Luke, her daddy.

    I spent part of the morning on f.b. babbling about my Cornish rellies, only to see later they were actually men who married into my line. :(

    I tried to find another Chrishan and I did in 1714. Well it was transcribed as that, but I see this one as Christian.o_O

    I did find some references on the web to Chrishan, but it referred to it as a boys name from India. I am now tending to go with Christian on yours Wendy, despite what I see.

    I can still see at first glance what appears to be 'Chrishan'. Looking closer the 't i' are clearer with a more obvious crossed 't' but still look rather like some-ones fancy 'h' with the loop at the top.
    Perhaps with the one I showed the speaker was unclear &said what sounded like 'Chrishian'. - no teeth?
    Thank you both, I will take on temporary custody of this little group until I can prove them not to be mine. ;)

    It's certainly Christian - the 't' is looped forward as is normal at the time and incorporates the dot of the 'i'. Christian is a fairly common name in Somerset at this period as well,

    Are you Ladies subscribed to some society, I notice a lot of 'handwritten' records, think I'm maybe missing out somewhere, used to be subscribed to Ancestry & FMP some time ago, is it worth re subscribing to any?

    It really depends on which areas you are researching in. I have a yearly sub to Ancestry, but only do FMP month by month. I find FMP much better for my Kent ancestors.

    Also, depending upon your County Council, you should be able to access Ancestry and/or FMP for free at your local Library. :)

    Marriage at London (very helpful) on 25 June 1695 of a Luke MASON & Christian LOCKWOOD. Another record, this time on Ancestry, shows it took place at Temple Church - any help?

    I have to be honest I haven't a clue! I really need to do some sort of deciphering old records course. Any one know of anything? Dogsday please tell how you find FMP. I have a sub for Ancestry :(and not too happy. I would like to change. I mostly need Northumberland and Lincolnshire records.

    @gillyflower pop into your local Library. They should be able to give you free access to FMP so that you can try it out. :)

    Thanks. :) I will give it a try. I didn't know you could use FMP in libraries. I thought it was just Ancestry.
