Note: Johns birthplace has not been determined with complete certainty, the Parish register entry for his marriage to Alice shows him as being from Twemlow Parish in the Chapelry of Goostrey Barnshaw in Cheshire, other records show him as being from Gloucestershire or Cheshire. His marriage certificate to Nancy shows his father as Henry, a farmer from Gloucestershire, on balance I think I've got it right
