Research for Bullet Journal Page

Ancestor of Capt. George Denison
(Where Did He Come From?)

After finding this index and image record, I asked permission of Find My Past to blog about it. They kindly said I could. (re: Alexandra Edmondson Content Writer (US)

The current Denison genealogy lists John Denyson as the "earliest known ancestor", with his son William (Capt. George's father). William and his wife and three youngest sons (Daniel, Edward and George came to America.) 

Where did he come from? Solved.

  • Index does indeed say, Bishop Stortford, Hertfordshire, England (at St. Michael's)

I put a blue arrow to show the line number of the burial of John Denyson. John Denyson was buried "unreadable" day of December (p). Notice the next line says "6 day of December".  
  • index reads 4 December
  • image next line says 6 December
  • Does the "p" at the end of the line indicate it was a plague burial?

This is a great find but still with unanswered questions.
