Leader, 2nd Joshua 1

Birth Name Leader, 2nd Joshua
Birth Name Leader, 2nd Joshua
Gender male
Age at Death 73 years, 7 months, 17 days


Event Date Place Description Sources
Birth 1831-10-00 England   2a
Birth 1831 England 1881 Census  
Baptism 1831-12-25 Yaxley, Suffolk, England as son of William and Jane Aldrige 3a
Event Note

As Joshua is listed hereafter as Leeder/Leader son of William so I am presuming that this is an error by the Minister (Robert Rose) who also baptised Maria on 5 Jan as daughter of Jane Aldrige only. He also married William and Jane on 5 Jan - presumably after baptising Maria. SPECULATION: perhaps neither child was William's, but he lent his name and raised them as his own. - SJL.
