  General Notes:

Taking a guess at John being son of R&M for these reasons: - they have no John, there is a bit too much of a childless gap after marriage, and John's children's names are roughly what would be expected. Not really any other Sandiacre contenders.
[RB - 20050712 - his baptim is on the same page as Wm son of Milly and confirms these are his parents otr at least that they had a John at about the right time]



From 1815 to 1825 he was described at the time of each of his children's baptisms as a labourer. 7

From 1828 to 1833 he worked as a Carrier and lived in Stapleford, Notts. 8
