It has been somewhat busy around this house today. And the afternoon thunderstorms have come and gone.
My Parker Project continues. Today I thought I would present my work sheet of the preliminary research of the genealogy of my Parker family line. Here is my work sheet. All information is from the Parish Registers for Downham, which include both Baptisms and Marriages.
As you can see the Work Sheet is a recreation of those Baptism and Marriages Registrations that I have been able to find in Downham Chapelry in the Parish of Whalley. As always these could change.
Downham is a Chapelry in the Parish of Whalley. The microfilm of the Registers is FHL . The inserted image of the page titled “October Baptisms” includes two entries of two baptisms for 6th April 1788.
Here are my transcriptions. I am not sure if the surname reads Parker or Tasker. Both surnames were local to the area. William Parker would have been my ggg-grandfather. See my Parker Descendant Chart, in the drop down menu under the label heading Robertson.
6th William Son of William & Agnes Parker/Tasker of Lawley
6th William Son of John & Mary Parker/Tasker of _____ within Lawley
