Michael was born in Taddington in 1645, the son of George and Margaret, and baptised there on 2nd August (1). He had an older brother Adam, and an older sister Ellin (2).

He married Elizabeth Bateman on 5th November 1667 (10). They had a son just a few months later, but he died an infant - before he could even be baptised (11). Their son John was born at the end of 1669 (or in the first couple of days of 1670) (12), followed by Richard in the spring of 1672 (13).

Michael died a few months later, aged just 27. He was buried at St Michael's in Taddington on 24th November 1672 (14).

Notes:

The Taddington PR entries above, from the transcript, are very hard to read/confirm on the microfilm of the registers, and the Bishop's Transcripts aren't extant early enough, so these entries will have to be confirmed with the original.
