    I would be very appreciative if someone could advise me as to the existence of Lutheran parish registers for Dublin inhabitants during the above period.

    The GRO has the Schulze Register which is a bit later – I’m not aware of earlier registers. Have you contacted them? http://www.lutheran-ireland.org/

    Dear Mr. Frewen, Thank you for your comment. George Eskildson (formerly Eskildsen) was the Danish consul at Dublin. The family flourished in Dublin circa 1770-1810. He had two wives and large family. He m.1 Mary Webb (Quaker perhaps), and m.2 Henrietta Waller Taverner. The strange thing is that I can’t find the baptismal record for a single child of George, but his granddaughter (my ancestor) Anne Grace Eskildson’s baptismal record (C of I) is easily found on the Internet. And even stranger is that George’s second marriage record (C of I) is also easily found on the Internet, but no children’s records. Thanks again. Member of IGRS over 50 year, Louis D. Melnick, Evanston, Illinois.
