Blake at Penton Mewsey

I think that reviewing one's information is always very valuable and I suppose I have looked at the baptisms of the children of William Blake and Ann Hellier hundreds of times but the notation that they were baptized at Penton has always just rolled in and out without making an impact. I checked the burial register as I mentioned earlier in the week for Bridget Blake but the burials are basically missing from 1649 to 1653. I do not find a marriage for Bridget Blake at least not at Andover.

Obviously my next set of transcriptions should be Penton Mewsey where I have the fiche:

Parish Register 1 - CMB 1647-1679
Parish Register 2 - CMB 1673-1744
Parish Register 3 - CMB 1744-1812
Parish Register 5 - M 1755-1812

I did not purchase Parish Register 4 which is Christenings 1813-1926, Parish Register 6 which is Marriages from 1813-1848, Parish Register 7 which is Marriages from 1838-1977 or Parish Register 9 which is Burials from 1813-1995.

I know my direct Blake family was at Upper Clatford from 1757 on when Joseph Blake (of Andover) married Joanna King of Upper Clatford at Upper Clatford 8 Jun 1757.

I did extract Blake entries from Penton Mewsey but I have found this to be unreliable as one can miss entries going purely on a visual rundown through a page on the fiche with 60 pages.

The entries one would expect to find for William Blake and Ann Hellier's children in 1647, 1648, and 1649 do not exist as there were no entries for Blake until 1653 although I want to recheck that when I transcribe the entire set of fiche that I have.

There is also a burial for a John Blake in 1653 but no parents are listed and it would appear that the priest normally did that.

I ended up starting the next Parish Register (6) at Andover. Time just presented itself for me to do that. I may actually finish it off this week. That will put me at 1714 for CMBs. The next Parish Register 7 takes me from the middle of 1714 to 1746 for all CMBs. This is basically where I want to be and I may not then start the next Register (8) which would take me from 1748 to 1783 (not sure what happened to 1747) for all CMBs. The next Register (9) only does CBs with a separate marriage register (10) for the time period. There are four fiche for Parish Register 7 so over 230 pages to transcribe although the writing has improved considerably and I can move at a fairly rapid pace. The priests at Andover tend to be rather precise. They record the basic information (i.e. out of parish participants in a wedding) so that one can fairly safely assume that if not recorded then the participants are of the parish which can be most helpful on occasion.
