    1. Re: [ENG-ESSEX-WITCHES] question from chey
    2. Reverend Steve
    3. Could you explain or tell me about the ESSEX Witches trials and how one tells for sure if they are related? Hi Chey, All the details that I have found about the Trials, including lists of names, are on my website http://www.witchtrials.co.uk The only way to be sure that you are related is to trace your family tree. Can an other members add to this reply ?? Steve

    3. Hi Mary, Welcome to the group. I've never heard of a district called Kent in Colchester. There are two churches that meet your description, you could try contacting them, although one is now Greek Orthodox. Stockwell Chapel East Stockwell Street Colchester St Helens Chapel St. Helens Street Colchester Also try the Essex Records Office http://seax.essexcc.gov.uk/%5CLogin.asp?Start=False&ERO=2 Sorry I can't help more, but this list is only about Essex Witches Steve http://www.hulford.co.uk/essex.html Do as you will and know what you do

    2. Mary
    3. Dear Listers, I'm afraid I'm here on false pretences. can anyone tell me if there's a list for the Colchester district of Kent.? I'm hoping someone can check a baptism for me for a John Scott Henderson baptised 21st Feb 1797 in St. Helen's Lane , Stockwell Chapel, Independent Colchester churches. I'm hoping there may be mention of the father's profession, witnesses etc. If anyone can point me in the right direction I'd be grateful. Sorry if I'm distracting you from your main interests, Best wishes for Easter, mary
