    Notes 
    • Thomas and his wife Ann had several children, three of whom, William, Thomas and John David, were baptised at St. Leonard's, Shoreditch, in London, in 1768, 1770 and 1771. Why Thomas went to live in London at that time is a matter of speculation but, after a few years, he and his family returned to Coventry and in 1772, the year in which Thomas was admitted as a Freeman of the City, they were living in the East Street Ward of the City. Two years later, in October 1774, at the time of the Poll to elect an MP for Coventry, Thomas was listed as an " Out-Voter " , living at Stoke, near Coventry. Thomas and Ann's daughters, Sarah and Phoebe, were baptised at Stoke in 1774 and 1777. In 1785, Thomas was recorded as Thomas Boulstridge of Stoke, engine weaver and, in 1796, as Thomas Bouldstridge, formerly of Gosford Street and East Street Wards, Coventry, the Bouldstridge spelling being that which members of the family acquired in London. Thomas's brother William was living in New Buildings, Coventry at the time he was admitted as a Freeman of the City and, in 1774, was living in Gosford Street.
      The Bolstridges alias Boulstridges of Bedworth (Prof. N.A. Dudley)

      ********************************************************************** ***********************
      NB ---- I do not question the above information it is well documented at Coventry Archives, however I cannot not see the justification for assuming that this Thomas is the same Thomas, the son of Francis and Eleanor from Bedworth Woodlands as placed by Norman Dudley.
      The lack of Bol(d)stridges in the Parish Registers preceding this period has more to do with the state or loss of these registers than their absence. A recent index of the Precept Records records Bo(u)l(d)stridges prior to 1772, I shall check these in due course.

      A far more likely candidate is the Thomas Bolstridge who married Hannah King (Arnold) at nearby Astly. This Thomas was wrongly allocated to John and Ann Hewitt by Norman Dudley who had missed the burial of their Thomas.

      Another likely Candidate is the Thomas Bolstridge buried at Great Packington in 1781. No age is mentioned but these is a connection to Packington via Francis Bolstridges second wife Mary Daniel.
