I've only just noticed your posting - and hopefully you can help decide whether my ancestor was baptised at Bardfield Saling (little Bardfied).
My John Owers was born between 1795 and 1803 (from 1851 and 1861 census) and he said he was born at Rayne. However, he wasn't baptised at Rayne. He married Mary Rolfe at Great Leighs in 1821, and went on to have 12 children at Great Leighs between 1821 and 1843. There he remained until his death in 1861.
I have found a John Owers baptised at Bardfield Saling ( son of John & Sarah Owers) in 1801, but can not be certain that he is the same person.
