Stephen’s Great Grandfather is an elusive soul, so when I decided to check Ancestry for some records in the Liverpool Parish, I was not surprised to have no match for William Albert Taubman. However a search for simply Taubman returned 7 records.

There he is as “Gulielmus Albertus Taubman” so a word to the wise, some Roman Catholic priests latinised the Christian names, and this particular one had really poor hand writing, just take a look at the Maria Vernick spellings.
It’s also interesting to see the Latin note on the left, but I have not translated it yet. William had already been baptised in an Anglican Church back in 1860, so it may be related to that, but it also has “Sub conditione”, which suggests the Priest knew this or just suspected it.
