Henry Payne (1842-1907) Jack of All Trades
Woodville St Stephen's Parish Church
Baptism Card

This Baptism Card for my gg-grandfather Henry PAYNE (1842-1907) has fortunately survived the inevitable bonfires which often accompany the passing of each successive generation.  While it doesn't indicate the date of his baptism, used in conjunstion with Henry's Scholar's Admission Certificate for the church school, it made searching for the baptism very simple.  I have confirmed that Henry was baptized at St Stephen's on 12 March 1848.
I haven't seen any mention of this kind of document elsewhere, and wonder if they were common. I would be very interested in hearing from others who have come across them.
