In keeping with this train of genealogy (or perhaps genealogical) thought, here are two Pages from two Registers reflecting the baptism of JK’s great-great-grandaunt Sarah Elizabeth Aldridge. Also I have included the Births Registered in October, November, December 1853 Page.
This is where it becomes a wee bit confusing. According to the Births Registered Index gg-grandaunt Sarah Elizabeth Aldridge’s birth was registered in Liverpool sometime in the months of October through December in the Year 1853. The Baptism Register from the Parish Church of St. Peter as does the Bishops Transcript records the baptism as of 3 June 1853.
Above is the Page ALD-ALL from the Births Registered in October, November, December, 1853.
My transcription –

The next is the Baptism Register from the Parish Church of St. Peter in Liverpool. The image of the Register Page is downloaded from the Liverpool Record Office. The corresponding Reference Number is 283/PET/2/41.
My transcription –

And here is the new piece of information gg-grandaunt Sarah Elizabeth appears to be have been named for her mother, JK’s ggg-grandmother Sarah Elizabeth. It is a wonder how bit by bit pieces of information and data are gathered and accumulated from document to document.
Stay tuned for details on gg-grandmother Julia Adelaide (née Aldridge) McCullogh.
