    I'm transcribing a burial register and for the life of me I cannot figure out what this entry says.. well, I have a theory but it doesn't make much sense in reality.

    Robert Wolley a child ........... with ................

    could you cast your eyes upon it and see what you think? thank you.

    At nurse with Mrs Tanel? Not sure of the name but pretty sure it is "At Nurse". He was only 20 weeks old so would be likely.

      Not sure if the surname as it’s a bit unclear but the child was definitely “at Nurse with”. If there had been a census that far back he’d have appeared in it as “Nurse child”.

        Ahh thanks ladies not that it makes much sense though

        Robert Wolley a child at nurse with M [Mrs?] Tanel

        so the nurse was with Mrs T? or the nurse was Mrs T?

        this is 1829 btw.

          Might Mrs T have been a wet nurse?
          Could the mother of Robert have died, so the baby was put out to be nursed ,to give him a chance of surviving?

            I'd say the nurse was Mrs T.



            Looking at it again I am now thinking it says Farrel/Farrell. Not that I could find any instances of any Farrells in Pinxton at any time!

              Is it possible to find it on another site, say FMP? Sometimes it may be a different photo of the same record, and might be more legible.
              My vote:
              at nurse with M Farrell.

                Agree with the above. Nurse child often equivalent to foster child, I think.

                What a sad entry the next one is too

                  I guess, but there is another death of [infant] Ann Woolley d/of Ann in 1830 in Pinxton.

                  that's if Woolley is the surname

                    isn't it just so sad? I have also seen twins that had died and were buried in the same coffin.
