Ari’s 8x great-grandmother, Alice Robinson, was born in 1709 in Huddington, Worcestershire and christened on the 10th of April that year.

The year was remembered as being the coldest in Europe for 500 years (see this New Scientist article on the Great Frost).

Alice was the daughter of John and Mary.

On 11 October 1731 she married John Day at the church in Huddington.

Their son George was born in 1732 and William (Ari’s 7x great-grandfather) in 1735.

Sadly, it looks as though Alice died giving birth to William. Her burial took place at the church on the same day as his baptism.

Ari, this is how you are related to Alice:
