  • Relationshipwith Mathias St. John
    Name 1635  St. Leonard, Shoreditch, Middlesex, England Find all individuals with events at this location 
    Mathews Sention

    The author of the record doesn\'t use letters consistently from child to father. The record is also faded and hard to read. It appears to be M a t H e w (or ia)s. The problem is in the H followed by E in the child\'s name versus the H followed by E in the son\'s. Since it looks like two versions of HE, I believe son was named after father as Mathews rather than Matheias. There is clearly an E following the H which suggests instead of next IAS it is WS. -- 22 Dec 2017 Suzanne St. John

    It also appears the strokes on EIAS are faded and actually are Ews where the top of the E extends and appears to dot the W that looks like an I with faded pen stroke. 11 Jul 2019 - Suzanne St. John
