    Notes 
    • 16 Jul
      There's interesting connections between the Pontesbury and Wrockwardine. The son John lived in Pontesbury but stated born in Wrockwardine and was also married there

      These parents are an assumption from IGI, based on only 98 birth in the area - so therefore so are the rest of the children.
