  Research Notes:

Elizabeth's elder sister, Ann, was first married at the age of 14. Therefore, have assumed Elizabeth may also have married at the same age.

The link between the Chantler family and the Egles family is supported by the will of Lucy Barham (neι Chantler) dated 8 Oct 1716 which names John Egles, George Egles (senior and junior) and George Goring (husband of Elizabeth Egles).
