1797 Burial of Lankshear's child at St Mary Somerset in the City Upper Thames Street

Email received 5 Jan 2006

Hello Ron
I have today been ploughing through the Churchwardens' Accounts for the parish of St Mary Somerset in the City and spotted the following reference:
13 April 1797
Cash received
for Burial of Lankshear's child
10s. 6d
I don't know if this is of any use at all to you, but better with you than with me! Next time I go, I will check the burial register for you in case there is an age or parent mentioned for this child, though at that date I doubt it ... The parish, if you don't know it, is close to the river and includes part of Upper Thames Street.
I am still working on this parish so will send anything else I find.

Only the Church Tower is still there - not at all clear who the people involved are ..........
