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.

Kind Regards

Hello Robert Burns,

Thank you for your reply regarding Elizabeth Fountain. I also saw the same birth but thought that the date would have made her 15 or 16 at the time of her giving birth to her son Richard bap.1776 at Yapham cum Meltonby. There is also the distance from Coxwold to Wilberfoss which today is 31.5 miles. I have since my posting found another birth on Family Search for a Elizabeth Fountain which I would really appreciate your thoughts on and it is.

Elizabeth Fountain bap. 25th Sept. 1740 at All Saints, Saint Peter the Little Pavement York. Yorkshire. England.

Her Father was Samuel Fountain bap. 7th Sept. 1711 also at All Saints Church, Pavement. York.

Her Mother was Elizabeth Woodall bap. 1704

I hope that I haven't offended you with this but I would be most grateful for your opinion on this as I would hate to go down the wrong route.

Thank you again for taking the time to search.

Regards

Tony Suter
