I am having trouble deciphering some of this baptism record.
It seems to be a match for a William John Gifford, whose parents were William and Lydia, servants in Belgravia. I think there's a small note saying he was born two years earlier "Born the 20th Day of October 1841"? as this is for 23rd October 1843. And the address is something like No 15, West Pound Street?, or Millpond Street? in Kensington/Chelsea, London.
The church was Holy Trinity Brompton ( map )
So my three questions are:
- What does it say under "William John"?
- what was their Abode?
- Is the mother's name Lydia?
