The History of Infant Baptism by sprinkling, and how it became accepted by various denominations today. Also, according to this writer, it was the translators of the Bishops Bible in 1561 that first invented the words "baptism" and "baptize" -- rather than simply translate the Greek word into English; however, it appears that they were also not the first to do so.

Why the translators of the King James Version (KJV) didn't "translate" the Greek words for Baptize. According to the author they didn't need to because other "translators" before them had not done so either, because the word "baptize" was already established in the minds of the English at that time -- having been brought to England by a Benedictine Monk named Augustine in the year 597 AD (See article below by Ross). However the author does agree that the actual meaning of the word is "to immerse." 

How the word "Baptize" came to England, by Bob L. Ross. According to Ross, the word "Baptize" was first brought to England by a Benedictine monk named Augustine (the Archbishop of Canterbury) in 597 AD.

Note: Here are two Links that support the baptism of Infants and also sprinkling.  

Baptism by Francis A. Schaeffer: Schaeffer defends both sprinkling and the baptism of infants.  And although I don't agree with everything he says, I do think he does a good job of defending what he believes.  This is the view that Presbyterians hold.

Here is another link by the WELS Lutherans that also defends both infant baptism and sprinkling.
