Research Notes:-
  1. All the above records were found in a single volume of the Parish registers for Paul entitled “Baptisms, burials, 1776-1812”.  There is one other volume that could potentially offer further baptisms for the family, the volume is entitled “Baptisms, marriages, burials, 1694-1775”.  Both of these registers can be found on line at FamilySearch - https://familysearch.org and are free to access.
  2. There are two couples during this period of time that have the Christian names William and Anne.  The family of William & Ann(e) listed above use the surname of Carbis or Carbice, as both parents were unable to write (based on the lack of a signature on their marriage record) this would explain the variable spelling.  The other couple listed are William and Ann Carter, a sample entry is show below
  • Baptismal record for Francis son of William and Ann Carter

    It is important to make sure that the families are not confused which could easily happen as some of the entries are so faded.
