Surely, if the record does say "Helions Bumpstead" it is the
"Helions" that the OP is reading as St John's and "Bumpstead" being
read as Buckland. Sounds very plausible, except for the discrepany
of it never having been in Dunmow district.
Perhaps the OP could put up a copy of the cert somewhere so we can
all have look-see.
Thanks for your suggestions everyone. I have already searched lists of
parishes and churches in Essex and have not found anything like it.
I have posted two images on the web. One is the complete certificate.
The other is a higher res. version of the relevant part.
The first letter appears to be "B" and the last letter "d". The rest I
can only guess.
I believe I have solved it !!!
Having looked very closely at both images, I am now convinced that the church was St
John's, BUSH END. What initially threw me was the fact that "Bush End" appears to
have been written as one word.
However, the village of Bush End does indeed have a small church called St John the
Evangelist, one of the Victorian churches built in 1857 and opened for services the
following year. According to Google, it is still in use today. Probably when first built it
was a chapelry of a larger parish.
Oddly enough, it does not appear in the Phillimore Atlas& Index of Parish Registers
for Essex. However - and here's the clincher - it lies between TAKELEY and
HATFIELD BROAD OAK, both of which were most definitely in the Dunmow
Registration District from 1837 to 1967. A Google map clearly locates Bush End as
being just a few miles from Great Dunmow.
Possibly events at St John's Bush End were recorded in the registers of Takeley or
Hatfield Broad Oak.
I think we are there!
