  • ID: I127
  • Name: Cassandra Elizabeth AUSTEN 1
  • Sex: F
  • Change Date: 07 SEP 2013
  • Birth: 09 JAN 1773 in Steventon, Hampshire
  • Note: The IGI gives 1772, and the transcript of the Steventon register shares the confusion: "1772, June 9 AUSTEN Cassandra Elizabeth dau. of Rev George and Cassandra, privately baptised, churched 25 Jan (?should this be 1773?)" 1773 is the year recorded in the original parish register. Cassandra was privately baptised on the same day, and publicly christened on 25 January. [In Christian tradition the Churching of Women is the ceremony wherein a blessing is given to mothers after recovery from childbirth. It includes thanksgiving for the woman's survival of childbirth.] 1
