  • Emma Durrell new Franks mother to Emma Ellen and Rosa (pictured) has been credited with being the first to be baptised at Brightlingsea Queen streets new swedbourgian church. This is according to an item found on this site.
    NB. Emma Franks is my Gt Gt Grandmother , therefore William Franks and his wife Martha neè Lufkin are my 3x Gt Grandparents.
    Simon Green aka Sid

    Extract shown below.

    What Mr Wakeling told Nick Butler:

    The Swedenborgians: active as early as 1809 in these parts. Used to advertise by poster and people came from Wivenhoe, St Osyth and Colchester. Moses Fletcher came to practice as a surgeon. Brightlingsea became the centre for spreading the gospel. The Brightlingsea group started in 1813.

    The first one in that book – My abstraction of Baptismal Registers at Swedenborg House – is 15 July 1839 (that is, the first Wivenhoe baptism) Emma Franks, the daughter of William Franks, a baker, and his wife Martha.

    The second Wivenhoe baptism was James their son on 6 March 1842.
