      George Easton in the dissenters certificate of 1769 is my fourth great grandfather. Came to America in November of 1817 with brother Edward and sister Elizabeth Easton to Maysville, Kentucky. Do you know if John and Susanna are the parents of George, Edward, and Elizabeth Easton?

        Everyone in the 17th and 19th centuries, were supposed to be baptised, married and buried by the Anglican Church despite what branch of Dissenters they belonged to.
        These are recorded in parish records.
        Contact the Isle of Axholme Family History Society, who have booklets for baptisms, burials and marriages on all Parishes in th Isle going back to 1600 or earlier. If you knew the parish (Town or village) they lived in it would narrow your search down.
        Early baptism records usually just give the father’s name, rarely the mother’s.
        Illegitimate baptisms give the mother’s name and often the father’s. If known it was mandatory for the mother to name the father at baptism. This was to prevent the child becoming dependent on the church poor law rates. Any money paid to the mother for the support of the child was recovered from the father.

      You can find the Crowle Parish Church registers on-line at the Lincolnshire Archives website. It takes a knack to quickly navigate through the pages but I think you will find George Easton’s baptism in the following

      CROWLE PAR/1/5
      Baptisms 1744/5-1805.
      Marriages 1744/5-1754.
      Burials 1744/5-1805.

      Date: 1745-1805

      http://www.lincstothepast.com/General-register/571096.record?pt=T

      If you know the date of baptism I can pinpoint the exact page.
