Heptonstall St Thomas – Baptisms

An error has been reported for the baptisms for this church. It is:

BUTTERWORTH – Richard on 26 December 1793

It should read:

BUTTERWORTH – Simeon on 26 December 1793 Son of John and Ann Butterworth

This has been confirmed in the Censuses as the original document that was transcribed was very faint and was very difficult to read.

The Transcription Index and the Databases have been changed to reflect this change.

We have been advised of 2 errors on a Monumental Inscription for the Halstead grave. “Hiram” was incorrectly shown as “Ivor” & Leah’s age was shown as 26 instead of 86. The correct entry should read :-

HIRAM HALSTEAD, died April 13th 1901. aged 72 years. Also LEAH HALSTEAD, who died March 9th 1916, aged 86 years.

Halifax St John BMDs – Missing Data

Last updated on March 14th, 2019 at 04:02 pm

The CDs & downloads for Halifax St John BMDs for 1813 to 1837 has recently been found to have a set of data missing.   Specifically, in the date sequence file only, baptisms from 1/7/1827 to 31/12/1827 are missing.    The files giving baptisms in name sequence are unaffected.

Anyone who has previously purchased a download of these files should already have had a replacement file sent to them.    Anyone who has previously purchased a CD & would like a correction file sent to them, should E-Mail projects@cfhsweb.co.uk & we will arrange for the corrected file to be E-Mailed to you.

Our thanks to Mr. David Greenwood for pointing this error out to us.
