<<snipped>>   Even if someone converted from another denomination to
Anglican they still wouldn't be baptised if they had been baptised in their
original church. 
<<snipped>>

I think this one depends - I've seen examples of moves into an Anglican
congregation, where the child was baptised twice (e.g. Primitive Methodism
then Anglican). It's probably all down to whether the minister in question
regards the previous baptism as being "valid" as far as CofE goes or not.
And in the absence of explicit statements to the contrary, many would regard
it as their personal decision to make.
