  Research Notes:

Possible baptisms:
- 8 Oct 1592, Uckfield; father: Roger
- 7 Jul 1594, Hartfield; father: Richard; unlikely (but not impossible) given distance from Fletching parish
- 29 Jun 1600, Chailey; father: William; most likely (but not certain) given that parish adjoins Fletching and Newick

Until 1648 all of John's & Margaret's children were baptised in Newick. His brother's will (1655) referred to their surviving children including Mary; she was probably the youngest daughter because they appear to be arranged in order of sex and age - typical of most wills at the time. There is a baptism in 1647 in Fletching (Margaret's home parish) that would fit; however the mother's name is not given. For the moment this baptism date/location has been used but it requires further investigation.

There are subsequent baptisms in Fletching which have not been included for the moment:
- James, 23 Feb 1650
- John, 11 May 1651
- Joane/Joan, 31 Jul 1653
- Richard, 23 Feb 1655
- Margaret, 23 Feb 1655.

Was there another John living in Fletching who was married about 1645?
