1662 - 1740
|Children||Margaret, Martha, William, Joshua, Francis, Martha, Rebeckah, Grace, Henry, Charles|
John was probably born in Over Haddon (1) in January 1662 (2), the son of William and Margaret. He had an older sister Grace (3), and an older brother Francis (4). His mother died when he was just turned two (5), and his brother later the same year (6).
Nothing more is known of him for over twenty years, other than that he married a woman called Grace (7)(8)(9). and their first daughter Margaret was born in 1687 (7). They had another daughter Martha in 1690 (8), and a son William in 1694 (9). Unfortunately his wife died the following summer (10).
Sometime over the next couple of years he appears to have married a woman called Margaret (24), and their first child was Joshua, born around 1698 (11). There then seems to have been a gap before their next son Francis was born in 1707 (12), then daughters Martha in 1710 (13), Rebeckah in 1712 (14), and Grace in 1716 (15), before his son Francis died the following year (16). He had a son Henry in 1719 (17), but he only lived for just under a year (18), as did his youngest son, Charles (19)(20).
His wife Margaret died in March 1727 (21), followed a month later by his daughter Martha (22), and a just under year after that by his daughter Rebeckah (23). John appears to have moved to Chelmorton towards the end of his life (25), probably to live with his son William. He died there in March 1740 (26).
