  • New Annie Chapman baptism information

    Annie Chapman’s baptism entry has now been found as follows:

    Annie Eliza Smith on the 23rd April at Christchurch, St Pancras. The church was local to where her father George Smith was stationed at Upper Albany Street by Regents Park, but their address was recorded on the register as Knightsbridge.
    Also, I've also found two new siblings for Annie. At the same church on the 2nd June 1844, a brother for Annie was christened and named George William Thomas Smith.
    In 1854, another brother William Smith was christened on 1st February at Christchurch, St Pancras. But after only five months of life the child died. He was buried on the 3rd June at Holy Trinity, Brompton. The family lived at Raphael Street at that time and their sadness did not end there. Their eldest son died aged 12 and was buried only thirteen days after his younger brother.

        Not yet the boys are burial entries, I'm hoping that me and Jen will be writing a book in the coming years when full information plus a lot more will hopefully be revealed

            Even though Annie was baptised a month after her parents marriage, it's interesting and kind of cute that George felt embarrassed enough to date his marriage back to Feb. 1840 in his army records.
