  • Name Robert Brentley (Brenkley) 
    Born Abt.1766  Hardraw, Hawes, Yorkshire, England Find all individuals with events at this location  [1, 2, 3
    • The year of birth is calculated from the age stated at death. It is quite possible that there was a gap of some years between birth and baptism. It is equally possible that his exact age was not known, when he died and that it was an estimate. Whilst further evidence would be desirable, it is highly probable that this is Robert's correct baptism record.
    Christened 16 Nov 1766  Hardraw, Hawes, Yorkshire, England Find all individuals with events at this location  [3
    • The entry in the baptism register reads as follows: "Rob't the natural son of Ann Brenkley by Rob Smith".

      As Ann and Robert Smith were not married, then their son retained Ann's surname. It was very helpful of the vicar to record the father's name for such a birth and it is certainly unusual.
