While looking up parish registers, I happened upon a 34 page booklet published 1811 in Bath, Lancashire, England titled ...
"A respectful examination of the judgment delivered Dec. 11, 1809, by the Right Hon. Sir J. Nicholl ... against the Rev. John Wight Wickes, for refusing to bury an infant child, which had been baptized by a dissenting minister : in a letter to Sir John Nicholl" ~ by the Rev Charles Daubeny, Archdeacon of Sarum
It reminded me of an incident I came across in my family research. My great grandfather had a brother John Mavor, who ventured west in 1901 to get cheap land being sold by the CPR. Once settled he went back to his hometown in Compton,QC to marry his sweetheart, Marcia Ruth Carbee. That is how I came to look into the Carbee family.
Marcia's brother Edwin had a son Albert born 1901. Albert died in 1906 of the Black Measles, a very rare and deadly disease. Because of this he was refused burial at the cemetery and so was buried north of the homestead in a secluded grave. It was believed the germ would never die, so the grave was never to be opened.
