bullet  Notes:

The eldest son, William married his cousin Rachel Fawdry in Brailes in Warwickshire. They lived across the county border in Swalcliffe in Oxfordshire until around 1800 when they moved to Birmingham, where William was a milkman. They had eight children - six daughters and two sons. The eldest daughter Rachel firstly married her cousin George, who was also a milkman in Birmingham, and secondly to Joseph Thomas, who was a milkman and later an Agent for the Birmingham Canal Company. The eldest son William was a milkman, did not marry, and drowned in the Edgbaston Pool in 1851 (suicide). The next daughter was Lucy (qv), who married James Thomas (qv), the brother of Joseph who five years later married Lucy's widowed older sister. Little is known about the next two daughters Sarah and Ann, except that Ann married Joseph Ward. The next daughter Elizabeth married Moses Pressdee, a warehouseman in Birmingham; he died from TB in his late 30s. The youngest daughter Charlotte married Thomas Upton, a jeweller in Birmingham; he died from TB in his early 40s. The youngest son Cornelius was also a milkman in Birmingham, and had eight children with his wife Mary Burdidge; their two married daughters both moved to London.
