Hoping to find scan of baptism

Query by Bawden

Hi Helpers!

I have come across something a bit odd and need some help.
This baptism:


of an "Aiera" Bowden appears to be a twin sister to my relative. However, the name is totally our of keeping with every single other family name for generations before and after. I REALLY want to see the original scan so I can check to see if it has been interpreted correctly, but when I go to family search and view the book for Perranuthnoe for this period, I see that at around 1770 one flick of the page takes me straight to burials. There does not appear to be a viewable record for those intervening years. The next book starts at 1814.

Is there a way I can see that 1792 entry with my own two eyes without going to Cornwall?

Thanks for your advice :)

Was your "Aiera" BOWDEN baptised 03 June 1792 in Perranuthnoe, Cornwall, to parents
William and Mary?

And, did "Aiera" have siblings named May, Margaret and Thomas?

Thanks for your replies Noggin and Janilye I will look into it.


baptised to William and Mary, Yes.
but although I have lots of siblings (younger), not those ones. When were they baptised?
I have been wondering if 'Aiera' is the transcribers interpretation of 'Anne' as my ancestor (who appears to be a 'twin' is Anne. I can imagine scrawly handwriting being interpreted this way.
What are your thoughts?
