The Christening of Martha Ellingham at St Georges Church, Littleport, took place on May 3rd, 1841. The Reverend at the time was in the habit of keeping records of baptisms, marriages and funerals he performed in a note book and entering the details into the official record books at a later date. As a consequence many errors have come to light over the years and Martha's baptism is another example of this. The son of David and Mary Smith has been recorded as Martha, and the daughter of John and Maria Ellingham has been recorded as John! Thank you to Bruce Frost of the Littleport Society for bringing this to our attention.
