In the following notes, the locations of christenings and marriages were always Chester Le Street, Durham, England.I also have ignored the various (mis)spellings of the last name.
Can anyone verify who was the father of Robert Bainbridge (c. 5 DEC 1763; m. 24 FEB 1794 Ann Hall)?I have been able to identify two possibilities:
1.Robert Bainbridge (c. 23 Feb 1746) (Seems unlikely, but marriages under age 14 were performed at this time.Would have been age 17 at birth of RB 1763)) Father: Valentine Bainbridge (c. 3 MAR 1706; m. 4 DEC 1731 Jane Wilson)
2.Robert Bainbridge (c. 2 Apr 1738) (Seems more likely, but haven't been able to confirm.) Father: Bartholomew Bainbridge (c. 24 Aug 1703; m. 11 OCT 1731 Mary Surtis)
The father of both Bartholomew and Valentine appears to have been John Bainbridge (b. 25 Sep 1681) who was the son of Ralph Bainbridge(b. abt 1650; m. 11 Nov 1676).
Any assistance in clarifying / verifying this information would be appreciated.
