I wonder if it sounded more like Easter when it was said by the parents?

I think Easter sounds lovely. Perhaps the enumerator was a tad deaf.

Quite possible to sound like Easter with a Lanky twang.

[quote="Gloria"]Does anyone know what this child's name is????
Whereas Nancy Spencer singlewoman, was on the twentyfourth day of October 1837 delivered of a male Bastard Child; and the said child, on the seventh say of January last by reason of its said mother being unable to provide for its maintenance, became chargeable to the Township of Burnley in the County of Lancaster, and from thence hitherto has been maintained and supported by the said Township. And Whereas we the undersigned being the Overseers of the Poor of the said Township have made diligent enquiry as to the Father of the said Child, and find that you James Kippax are the father of the same.
Therefore take notice, that at the next General Quarter Sessions of the Peace to be holden by adjournment at Preston for the County of Lancaster on the tenth day of April next, we as such Overseers of the Poor of the said Township, intend to make application to the court at the said Sessions, for an Order upon you to reimburse the said Township for the maintainance ans support of the said Child.
Given under our hands this seventh day of March 1839.
To James Kippax of Burnley Stone Mason
Overseers of the said Township of Burnley
John Lie
James Deard
James Robinson
These three names are not easy to read.

On a seperate sheet
1839 march 18th personally seved Jas Kippax with a duplicate copy
Jas Robinson[/quote]

I have just dug this one out again to give myself a headache :lol: I have been trying to find this James Kippax stonemason, the James Kippax father of Nancy Spencer's child in the censuses, but they all seem to be weavers-----can anyone else find him?

Sounds like this one frustrates you!

Did you look at 'the next quarter sessions'?

I think you could have found him Charon, thankyou.
I have decided I am going around with my eyes shut at the moment.
I had got it into my head that James was the same James (born 1817) who was my 3Xgt grandfather, now it would appear that he isn't----hopefully.
