John Hall (died 1673) of Hartford & Middletown, has developed a middle name: Cuthbert. We all know how rare a middle name is in the 1600s. There's a note in the changes that says "Middle name clarification: important because listed on parish records for son John's birth"
Son John was according to unnamed sources bpt in Kent, England, 5 Feb 1619 or more commonly just 1619. Or perhaps St. Mary's, Whitechapel, in Coventry, Warwickshire. I looked at FreeReg.org.uk and at FamilySearch and found no such baptism, but a double check wouldn't hurt.
Can anyone find son John's baptism? or a reason to leave Cuthbert.
I suspect that if this baptism can be found, it will just say John son of Cuthbert Hall, not John son of John Cuthbert Hall. At which point we will have to assume it's an entirely different John
