The Family of Isaac Ford 1764-1834

The Lawton Parish Register reveals that the parents of the Isaac Ford 1800-1861 were Isaac and Mary Ford. It is also clear that, in 19th Century rural Staffordshire, marriage was often followed by a series of children at two to four year intervals. So it is possible to piece together families and their movements from the Baptism Recods. That has led me to construct the following tree:

The family of Isaac Ford born 1764 - Scrollable
Isaac Ford 1764-1834 = Mary
John
1789-1863
William
1791-1856
Thomas
1794-1857
Hannah
1797-1813
Isaac
1800-1861

The evidence for the existence of this family group is fairly strong. The first and last two children were baptised at Lawton. The middle two at Newchapel, but stated to be residents of Brieryhurst hamlet, which is just over the county border from Lawton.
