Narrative and Notes

John BARNETT is identified as William's father from William's christening record. He married Jane WHITON in 1720 in Leek and they had two children.

John may have been christened either in Stone on 16 Jan 1696 by Millard BARNETT or in Alton on 7 May 1699 by Jon and Dorothy BARNETT, both which are relatively close to Leek.
