A marriage didn't come up in the Evercreech material I was looking at either, I'm sorry to say.

Hi Reggie

I have in the past used te 14 day free trial on Ancestry so I don't think I would qualify again. However I understand Ancestry can be accessed free at the local library so that might be worth trying.

Kucinta thank you for this information. I have just found some of this information on the new version of IGI Family Search I hadn't realised they had updated their site this year, I had been working from the older version on my favourites bar which was hopeless. Still there is no marriage for William Backhouse and Hester Colston.

Hi Linda

The Parish info I posted was from Ancestry. There is a section on there for Evercreech.........it might pay you to take out their 14-day free trial.

I know it's not the same parents John and Ann, but wondered if it might be John's baptism?

Thank you all for your replies. Reggie I have found your information very useful as I didin't have the names of William's parents so couldn't find his siblings. Where was this information, on the IGI? I don't seem to have much luck with the site with it's new formate, I will take another look

The poor little mite was christened, but no name recorded. As though it was the child's fault!
