kerbent , from Victoria, Australia, has been a Family Tree Circles member since Oct 2007. is researching the following names: EBBOTT, TODMAN, CRUMP and 14 other(s).
Often a private baptism was performed at home when it was thought that the baby was not going to survive.
You then sometimes find at a later date in the parish register a record that reads something similar to "admitted to Church" or "Brought to Church". This means that the child survived and was later brought to the church for the public celebration which the original baptism was meant to be.
