5) Samuel Ardron VII (1867 -)
My 1st cousin 4 times removed was baptised on 28 July 1867 at Kilnhurst. His father was a miner. (APR)


Did Samuel die in 1867 aged 2 and was he buried on 6 December 1867? (APR + GRO ref Rotherham 9c 317 Dec 1867 - [aged] 2) Based on being aged 2 at death he would have been born in 1865 but no GRO birth index entry has been found.

Carol Ackroyd believes that there were two Samuels; 1) baptised on 3 February 1866 at St Thomas, Kilnhurst, 2) baptised 28 July 1867 at St Thomas, Kilnhurst. This would tie in with the GRO death reference for Samuel in 1867 aged 2. However would they have had two sons with the same name as the overlap by about 6 months?
