Arthur SOLMAN (HS1.3.9.6)

bapt: 28 Feb 1875, Hunton KEN

(Hunton registers show the baptism of an Emma daughter of Charles and Jane SOLMAN on 2 Nov 1862 but Emma is not mentioned in Jane's Prayer Book, nor is her birth listed in the GRO indexes, unlike the births of all the other children. Hunton registers show the baptism of another child (of different parents) on the same day, and his christian names were given as Edwin (or Edwd) William, so it seems likely that the clerk mixed up the names of two children when entering them in the register.)
