Maybe I should clarify this one as there was a follow up posting later. In
this one Michael Purcell speculates that some of the baptisms at the R.C.
Cathedral in Carlow (Ireland) were Protestants as he knew some of the
families. In fact this was a Protestant father but the mother was Catholic
therefore the baptism in the Catholic church. The boy had also been
baptized at St. Mary's Carlow (Protestant) 6 days earlier. Perhaps the
second baptism was yielding to her family's pressure. It was a wasted
effort though as the boy, Robert, grew up to marry a Quaker woman and to
raise three Quaker children anyway.
