    Notes 
    • Some doubt whether the 5 Surlingham born children are part of the same family as the 3 Beighton born children. Did they move about 1757?
      The dates make this entirely possible, there are no births that make pregnancies too close.

      Surlingham to Beighton is a 15 mile drive these days but the Surlingham Ferry existed in the 18th century. The pub 'The Ferry' was opened in 1725, so assuming the Ferry was there in 1757 they could have made the 7 mile journey. At some stage at least the ferry was a 'horse ferry', so a cart and horse journey was feasible.
