13 June 1813: my great great great great great uncle was born. Samuel MURCH, born to another Samuel MURCH and Margaret Marshall Littley MURCH in Ottery St Mary, Devon. He was baptised on Boxing Day of that year: 26 December 1775, also in Ottery St Mary.
And here he is again in the Bishop's Transcripts, a little more neatly written
Seems fairly straightforward, don't you think? Except someone sixty years ago said that he also died and was buried on that same Boxing Day - and I can't find a record to back this up.
