Antw: Godparent order

Sorry, no, I have never found such an order.

In 1700-1800 Hannover, would there have been a "rule of thumb" used for Godparents (Taufpaten)?
In other words, for the first child, would the eldest brother of the father and eldest sister of the mother have been asked to serve as godparents? Thanks
