hi....i have found a nathaniel baker marrying 5 june 1826 at st johns church margate which is only a short distance from sandwhich. also there are other twymans being married at the same time as elizabeth who could be siblings.

also a nathaniel baker baptized 15 sep 1805 son of thomas & sarah baker in the village of eythorne which is near by to sandwich i believe.
did elizabeth baker marry locally?/

Hi John: Thanks for the response.The Nathaniel Baker and Susanna Twyman married June 5, 1826 at St John's are my people.The problem I'm having is with their children. The IGI seems to have the names entered backwards. This is what I've managed to find at St. John's. They have to be the same individual:
1. Nathaniel Baker Twyman christened June 11, 1826
Mother: SarahAnn Twyman
Father: ?
2. Nathaniel Baker Twyman christened June 11, 1826
Father: Twyman
Mother: SusanneAnn

Then we jump to St. Mary's, Eastry, Sandwich:
1. Elizabeth Baker christened April 8, 1827
Father: Nathaniel Baker
Mother: Susanna ?

I have had no luck finding any records for St. Mary's. If I could find Elizabeth's christening record it might answer some questions for me about her parentage. Is is possible that they switched chuches? I don't know if she married locally or not. She may have had 3 children, although I don't know why they would be listed as Bakers.
1. Elizabeth Baker born 1850 Eastry
2. Ann Baker born 1852 born Eastry
3. John Baker born 1852 or 1853. Eastry

Sorry to bore you with all this but I really need help. If you can be of any assistance I will be most grateful.

Hello Yvonne -- you mentioned having "no luck finding any records for St. Mary's" (Eastry).

Perhaps I am misunderstanding what you meant here but these records do exist, and in a variety of places and sources. For example, in England, the Bishop's Transcripts (BTs) -- a contemporary copy of the PRs -- are at the Canterbury Cathedral Library with copies at the Kent Archives Office, the Kent FHS and the Society of Genealogists in London.

However, if you're not in England, both the PRs and the BTs can be searched on microfilm at any FHC, if you have one near you.

The LDS website at http://www.familysearch.org lists -- in the Family History Library Catalog (FHLC) under Place Search -- the following records for Eastry during the time period you're interested in:

Bishop's transcripts, 1564-1898
Parish registers for Eastry, 1559-1951
Parish registers, 1559-1986

The microfilms for records of St. John Thanet (Margate) can similarly be found in the FHLC.

The confusion over surnames in the IGI is not surprising. The IGI, while invaluable in many ways, is notorious for errors, omissions, gaps and all manner of incorrect info. Therefore, not a source to rely on completely. Much better to go to the original documents.

Hope this is helpful. Regards, Andrea (admin for Kent Board)

Hi Andrea: Thanks for all the information. It is very helpful I did check the LDS catalog and found two entries:

1. BT - Church of England-Parish Church of Eastry, Kent
2. PR - Church of England-St. Mary's Church(Sandwich Kent)

The IGI lists Eliz. Baker being christened 1827 at St. Mary's, Eastry, Sandwich. Which would you suggest I order? Are there two different St. Mary's, one in Eastry and one in Sandwich. Sorry for so many questions. I am in the U.S.and just a tad confused.

Thanks again, Yvonne
