Johannes Franciscus Josephus Kirch and Marie married around 1750
Hello there, have ancestor Adam Kirch who lived between 1755-1825 and had the sons Frances Adam Kirch and James Ferdinand Kirch. There doesnt seem to be a baptism showing Adam or any variant such as Adolf at any time in London but hes too young to have been a Palatine migrant as they were approx 1710. A Charlotta Kirch is baptised in Westminster in 1757 parents are Johannes Franciscus Josephus Kirch and Marie. Given the names it seems likely these are Adams parents. Location also is promising with these. The issue is that the large migration of Germans was 1710 and these again are way too young to have been alive at that time which means they were either later singular migrants or their parents moved to London and had them here; again there are no records showing Johannes in England. Theres a Franciscus Josephus Kirch baptised to Johannes and Susanna in Mainz, Hessen, Germany, in 1737 and this guy is thus the right age but its a catholic baptism (Charlotta was baptised in an Anglican ceremony as were the later generations on that line) and is after the main migration occurred so its unlikely as my Johannes is more likely to have originated in London to German migrants than have been a migrant. Does anyone have any experience with Palatine ancestry in England and know where to check to get something on Johannes and Marie?
