  1. Kevin do you think it's possible these were siblings who happened to be baptised on the same day, rather than triplets? I have come across that in the Scottish records - whole families being baptised at once :-)

  2. Hello Jo, I agree it's possible Jo but the register clearly states "triplets." It was considered very important to baptise R.C. infants quickly. If they were converts that would be recorded too.

    I appreciate your comments and I have seen a lot of children being baptised in one group , particularly Anglicans.

  3. Definitely triplets then!
