Look Up's Wanted



I quite often receive information on the Spanswick surname, and in consequence have a growing "To do" list which I'm gradually working through - should anyone be visiting one of the Record Offices below, and has time to do a look up it would be a great help !

Westminster or London Metropolitan Archive

St.Mary Marylebone Road Baptism
Q. 28th Jun 1787, Elizabeth Spanswick was baptised d/o John and Jane Spanswick - it would be great to get the rest of the details such as occupation (still not sure how I missed it in the first place) John married Jane Tristram at St.George Hanover Square in 1781. He became Keeper of the Mews of Stables, and left a PCC will in 1817. His wife Jane was granted a pension from 1818.

Kent Record Office

Lewisham Baptism
Q. I've attempted to trace the Spanswick surname through the 1841-1871 Census's - one mystery is James Spanswick who appears in the 1851 Wiltshire Census at Pewsey - with place of birth Lewisham Kent, aged 35; and in 1861 and 1871 he is living in Sunbury, Middlesex aged 46 in 1861 and 54 in 1871; implying that he was born and possibly baptised, between 1814 and 1817. Place of birth is always Lewisham. Is there a Spanswick baptism at Lewisham within this date range ?
