Mary A Franklin (Parish Records)

My grandmothers mother was a Franklin from Wiltshire. I had a look around the websites. It appears that the main concentrations of Franklins are in greater London, Essex, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire. The latter two extending outwards somewhat. No surprise about London although Essex is surprising.

Evidently Gloucestershire is well worthwhile continuing to search. Another website listed most common Franklin first names from the Census's. Don't know how reliable it is, but James 1841 = 6, 1851 = 65, 1861 = 111. One of the 1841 James is mine and I don't think connected to yours.

Good luck with your researches.
