Default Justrell/Instrell??

My ancestor (I hope!!) was Elizabeth/betty Justrell Corke.

She appears to be the only child of John Corke and Elizabeth Justril.

This is their marriage on 21 September 1732: https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interacti...0144/901926312


and this is her baptism on 6 July 1733: https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interacti...51-00095/32942


But is it Justrell or Instrell? I and J are identical in this period.


I think (judging by hits on freebmd) it is Instrell, but would welcome your comments.

Could be either! But I agree about the FreeBMD numbers.

I looked at hit numbers on Ancestry and FMP. The J hit rate was around 60 on both sites and for I around 2,500. Presumably some of those will be mistranscriptions, but still a big difference in the numbers.

Looking at the images you posted, as you say, pretty impossible to know what they were thinking! I see there's an Israel Smith further down the baptism page, but his entry is no help at all!

I hate not knowing what would have been so obvious to their contemporaries.

I searched *strell in Wiltshire on Ancestry and there are a lot of Gastrell and Gustrell entries too. Not too far from Justrell depending on how you pronounce it. (I know that's not at all helpful!)

Thank you, Merry!

That's an interesting line to pursue. I'll see if I can find any cross overs.
