is only about six miles away from Wandsworth where we next trace
William and Ann Susan a few months later.
William and Ann Susan's first child, James, was born on 2nd
April 1812. Although the records don't show where, it's
probable that it was in the area where he was baptised: in All Saint's,
the parish church of Wandsworth on 26th July 1812. Again, Wandsworth
was then in Surrey, though now in London. James may have been named
after his uncle (see Part 1.7)
or indeed after a as yet unknown grandfather as was sometimes the
A second son, a Thomas William was born c.1813 or 1814 probably
in Wandsworth too. We can't be certain as there is only record
of his burial at All Saints, Wandsworth, as 'an infant'
on 20th March 1814 . This record was only in the 'Bishops Transcripts'
- copies of the entries from the parish registers which were forwarded
to the Bishop at regular intervals. (The original entry couldn't
be located in the parish register).
