Ancestor Anniversaries: Edward Read

This latest Ancestor Anniversary is to mark the Baptism on this day in 1737 of Edward Read.  Edward is the nephew of my 6 x great grandfather Cozens Read and is the son of William Read and Mary Turner, their first child.  Sadly there isn’t much to tell about Edward as the poor little chap died when only about 6 weeks old.  He was Baptised in Stoke Talmage, Oxfordshire and within those six weeks he was buried in Wheatfield, Oxfordshire.  His parents had only been married about a month when he was born.

The church at Wheatfield, Oxfordshire where Edward is buried. The church is in the middle of a field.  (Please excuse the poor quality)
