For anyone searching the KENNINGS FAMILY IN ENGLAND in the 1700's - in the parish register for the Anglican Parish Church of St. John's, PRESTON LANCASHIRE, i found the baptismal record for: "THOMAS KENNINGS BORN AT MELKSHAM IN WILTSHIRE. BAPTISED AT PRESTON, AGE 22, OCTOBER 23 1726". If you are researching this Thomas Kennings in Wiltshire in 1704 approx. you will not find him baptised there - but in Lancashire twenty two years later.
I am not researching this family - I put this reference on here simply to help anyone who is reseaching this family.
