Following a false lead from Ancestry.com for Benjamin Lansdown 1786 from Wiltshire
I was given a tip on Benjamin Lansdown parents from Ancestry.com. On verification I suspect this tip may not be true.
I have read with interest the article written about Ancestry.com on this web site.
I have Benjamin Lansdown born 1786 baptised on 10 September in Corsley, Wiltshire. The tip I was provided is his parent are Geroge Lansdown 1760 and Mary Weeks 1756.
I can not find any evidence that there is any connection between Benjamin and George. Further, George and Mary were married on 7 August 1797 at St Michaels, Bath.
On searching for children of George and Mary, I can find on child, Ann, born in 1790 with parents George Lansdown and Mary. Of course they could have had a child out of wedlock, but there could be another George Lansdown and Mary.
Can anyone spread any light on this for me.
