|I am trying to trace the parents of Elizabeth Fountain born abt. 1757 in Yorkshire.|
She had a Son Richard Fountain Bap. 1776/7 Yapham cum Meltonby East Yorkshire. I visited the Borthwick Institute at Heslington University York Yorkshire. and saw a copy of the Baptism which read.
Richard son of Elizabeth Fountain baptised this day 26th Feb. 1776 Yapham cum Meltonby.
It didn't give a Father's name which leads me to think that she wasn't married.
I have searched for Elizabeths birth records in surrounding villages ect. but so far have not been successful.
If anyone has any information, point me in the right direction or can help me with this brick wall I would be extremely grateful.
