Female Factory, Cascades

BURIALS & BAPTISMS A list of baptisms for factory infants up till February 1830 & a list of burials for infants up to February 1832.

NOTE Both lists are taken from the Birth, Death & Marriage registers and are by no means comprehensive. Not all church records from that period are included in the registers and the record needs to contain something that identifies the child as being at the factory. For burials, this is usually "Factory" listed as the place of death, for baptisms, the occupation or status of the mother (and they usually occur in bulk). Also note, father's name is almost always (I've seen maybe one or two exceptions) listed as unknown.
