Did You Know?

  • Although James Nowling's baptism place, Baldock, is unusually far (about 8.5 miles on foot) from the village, Benington, where he spent his adult life, a few years before his birth his parents John Newling and Mary Newling were on at least one occasion removed to Baldock from Aston, which is about 2.5 miles from Benington.
  • A John Newland of Little Munden married a Mary Starr by licence in Walkern in 1744, but since John Newling and Mary Newling's first recorded child wasn't baptised until 1751 I don't think there are sufficient grounds to say that the two couples were the same people.
