Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 201: 1867 Burial Record for John Richman in Hilperton, Wiltshire

It's Treasure Chest Thursday - time to look in my digital image files to see what treasures I can find for my family history and genealogy musings.

The treasure today is the Burial Record for John Richman in Hilperton, Wiltshire in 1867:

The information for John Richman's burial is (handwritten information in italics):

Heading:  BURIALS in the Parish of      Hilperton     
in the County of      Wilts     
in the Year One Thousand, Eight Hundred and    sixty seven    .

No.:  105
Name:  John Richman
Abode:  Hilperton
When Buried:  26 April [1867]
Age:  79
By Whom:  T.H. Tait, Rector [I think...the rector's handwriting leaves something to be desired]

The source citation for this burial entry is:

Church of England, Parish Church of Hilperton (Wiltshire, England), Bishop's Transcripts, 1622-1880, "Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, 1837-1880," FHL BRITISH Microfilm 1,279,404, Item 15 (accessed 5 February 2014); Burials, Page 14 (penned), 1867, No. 105, John Richman entry.

The information in this burial entry is very limited, but the age of 79 tells me that this is my 3rd great-grandfather, who was born in about 1788.  On the other hand, the burial date ism uch more definitive than the entry in the Civil Registraton records which just indicate the second quarter of 1867.  I have not ordered the Civil Registration death record to date.

I obtained this image from the Hilperton, Wiltshire Bishops Transcripts on microfilm at the Family History Library on 5 February 2014.
