George Trotter 1607 Gertrude Wren 1611

Here we go with controversy.  I found the original information for George's and Gertrude's christening in the Auckland St Andrew parish.  However, according to the Book North Country Diaries by JC Hodgson, Charles Wren's daughter Gertrude was a nun. 

Gertude Wren listed below might not be the right woman.  I need to find the original marriage record.  The fact I found both George and Gertrude together in the same Parish is a good and bad thing.  This information came from a Family Group Sheet if I remember right, so there is a likelihood that it is not correct.
