BAKERs of Banwell
published by on Wed, 04/06/2014 - 14:10

hello

I have been looking at the family of Edwin BAKER (1815-1882) and his wife Hester (nee Grant).

I believe that they had at least six children - Edwin George (1844-1929), Ann Archer (1846-1858), Maria (1848), Sarah (1852), Elizabeth (1855) & Harry (1858-1868).

I have found the baptisms of  the four girls (all baptised on 13 August 1855) and Harry (bap.1858) in your transcripts for St Andrew's, Banwell.  

However, a search on ancestry.com also shows that Elizabeth and Sarah BAKER (children of Edwin and Hester) were baptised in the Methodist chapel at Banwell in 1855.  

Do you think it is possible that the children would have been baptised twice?  Why would this be?

The short answer is "Yes", children could have been baptised in different denominations My guess is that they were not regular church goers because none of their children had been baptised before the two younger girls were baptised at the Methodist Church in March 1855. Presumably they later changed their minds and all four girls were taken to the St Andrew's in August of the same year.
