Looking for verification of my gr grandmother's birthplace and parent's names. I think she was born in Penclawdd, Glamorgan, Wales in 1863. Please help. Thankyou

Have just received a reply from 'Alun' regarding my gr grandmother, Sarah Ann/Annie Morris. I have since learned her birth date month, Oct. 11, 1863The reply mentions baptism date. I am now wondering if the date of baptism states the month and date of birth.
Before sending for a birth certificate I want to be sure. It seems that the name Sarah Ann/ Annie was a popular name at the time. I am delighted with such a quick response. Hope you can still help me. Thankyou !!

Sorry, no further information; birth dates are rarely recorded in church baptism registers.

The baptism date of April 1863 could not have been that of my gr-grandmother as her d o B is Oct. 1863. I have it written down that the name Sarah Ann Morris was listed in the 1881 Brit. census Can you verify this for me and perhaps tell me the parent's name and possible dwelling place? Thankyou, Joline

I may be too late with this reply, but have you tried the website called familyhistoryonline? It have BMD, and other infor for England and Wales. On one entry I found my ancestor and two of his siblings being baptised. A notation was made as to age . Mine was three years old, so that note cememted his birth date. It might help, and I have found it a good site. Donna
