Judith Radcliffe

ID# 648, (1806 - Sep 1849)

Judith Radcliffe was born in 1806 at Andreas, Andreas, Isle of Man.

Judith Radcliffe was baptised on 31 May 1806 in Andreas, Andreas, Isle of Man,

This is the only baptism of a Judith Radcliffe/ Ratcliffe recorded for around this time frame.

Recorded as Judy Radcliffe Martin.
Parents: Wm Radcliffe and Mary Martin.

Query is; that Judith is baptised in Andreas, but marriage states she is from the parish of Braddan.1

     Research Note:
If William Radcliffe and Mary Martin are Judith's parents, there is a very long lineage going back in the Isle of Man. Many of the connections are recorded on Ancestry.com along with details of Wills etc.
This certainly appears to be the correct parents, but I have no proof to say who Judith's parents are, just her age at death points to the year of birth around 1806.
