2 March In (My) History

Alfred and Medora BAKER's 13th child Hilda Florence was born in Wing on this day in 1892.

Also in Buckinghamshire, my 6xgreat-grandfather Joseph SIBLEY was baptised in Little Missenden on this day in 1742. St John The Baptist Church has surviving medieval wall paintings - we visited back in 2005:


And further afield in Ropley Hampshire, my 4xgreat-grandmother Elizabeth BUSS was also baptised on 2 March, this time in 1800.

After coming over from the Festival of Postcards blog carnival, I chose to look at this post almost at random. Coincidences always leave me amazed. I lived in Ropley for 17 years. It's such a small place, I rarely hear of it elsewhere!

Hilarious! That's what I love about genealogy, along with all the brickwalls there's a fair dash of serendipity floating about.
