1700-1783

Father Robert Heathcote
Mother Rebecca Bradbury
Wife Jane
Children Anne, Mary, Sarah, Lydia, John, Joseph, Robert, George


John was born in Flagg in 1700 (1), the son of Robert and Rebecca. He had a sister Mary three years his senior (2). Its not clear what younger siblings he had (2), except for a brother Robert who was born when he was 14 (3).

John's father died in 1730 (4), and then John married a woman called Jane soon afterwards, probably around 1732. Their first child, Ann, was born in 1733 (5). Another daughter, Mary, was born in 1736 (6), then Sarah in 1737 (7) (but she only lived for a couple of days (8)), and Lydia in 1738 (9) (but she died before she was 3 (10)). Having had four daughters, they next proceeded to have four sons - their eldest was John, born in 1742 (11). He was followed by Joseph in 1745 (12), then Robert in 1750 (13), and finally George in 1752 (14).

John died in 1783, and was buried in Chelmorton on 24th October (15).
