NOTES

The above births, and some of the marriages and burials, are from Quaker records. No residence is given in the birth enties for the 4 oldest children, but all 5 births were registered at the Slaughterford Meeting. It appears that the earlier births were not recorded until at least 1711 which may account for the apparent error in Sarah's year of birth.
