15 Oct 1791 (219 years ago) - Helena CAMPBELL, daughter of Archibald CAMPBELL in Scarinish, was baptised on the Isle of Tiree, Argyllshire, Scotland. Her mother was probably Anne McCALL. Helena (elsewhere referred to as Helen or Ellen) married Duncan CAMPBELL in 1810. [Great-great-great-grandmother]

15 Oct 1838 (172 years ago) - Matthew HUDSON was baptised at Crambe, North Yorkshire, England. He was a son of William HUDSON and Christiana MATTHEW of Barton-le-Willows, and husband of Sarah (maiden surname unknown). Matthew was a joiner/builder in Leeds and Middlesbrough. [Great-granduncle]

If you are researching these families, I will gladly provide full details of my sources, which include parish registers, directories and census records.

The idea for this weekly feature came from Linda McCauley's Documenting the Details. I use On This Day, a companion product for The Master Genealogist, to generate a list of events for the week.
