Note: Nov 5 1787 is the likely date of Frederick Summers baptism, but there are other possibilities. The parish records of Dursley have a baptism record for Frederick Summers and Martha Summers, children of Charles and Martha Summers on 5 Nov 1787. One possibility is that these were not twins but a delayed baptism for Frederick who was born a year earlier. Frederick's records from the British Army on 17 June 1816 stated he was 29 years and 220 days of age. Computing backwards, this would put his birthdate in Nov 1786. ( WO 25/372.) There was also a baptism record for Fredc Summers, son of Charles and Martha on 16 Oct 1783. It is likely that young Fredc died soon after 1783 and the next son was given the same name - a common occurrence. Frederick's discharge papers state he was born in Cam Parish, near Dursley.

DORSET MARRIAGES VOL 2, transcribed by Clifford Tatler, SOG.

Marriage of Ann Porter and Frederick Summers (soldier 35 Regt), 28 Aug 1805 - by banns. (Looks like Frederick signed name, she made X). Witnesses: William Read and Thomas Whittle.

The LDS microfiln of the Bishop's Transcripts for Broadway has a gap for records in the time frame of this document; however, the other pages from the film appear to be identical in handwriting and form to this document. Evidently, the copy held by the family is a contemporary document.

Register of Dursley Parish:

Charles Summers of the parish of Cam in the county of Gloucester, batchelor and Martha Vizard of this parish, spinster, married in this church by License this second day of January in the year 1760 by C Wallington.

Death

Note

As of 2009, Charles and Martha are the presumed parents of Frederick Summers of Dursely, based upon baptism records of Dursley. They were the only Summers family that had a son named Frederick in the 1780s. There was a George Frederick Summers born to different parents, but apprenticeship and other records from the 1800s show he was not Frederick Summers, the soldier from the 35th Foot.
