If there is anyone researching the names of Rutledge and Berry/Berrie, I
would be glad of any information. Any RYAN info. also welcome.
SUSAN LYDIA RUTLEDGE Born 9 Apr. 1823, I presume Calcutta. Did find her
Christening - 30 Dec. 1832, Calcutta. St. John's??
Her parents THOMAS & ELLEN (nee Berry) RUTLEDGE had the following children
whose births I have been able to trace. Think that Thomas was a Writer.
Would like to find out more about Thomas and Ellen.
1. ELLEN MATILDA - CHRISTENING 18 MAR. 1821. Where?
2. SUSAN (AS ABOVE)
3. EBENEZER SAMUEL RUTLEDGE Birth. 11 OCT. 1825. CHRISTENING 30 DEC. 1832.
4. ANN SOPHIA RUTLEDGE Birth 15 May 1831. CHRISTENING 30 Dec 1832. Calcutta.
Wonder why there was such a long delay for the baptisms of Susan, Ebenezer
and Ann, all being carried out on the same day. 30 Dec. 1832. Perhaps the
parents were in a place where there was no priest?
