    Notes 
    • The reasons for Assuming that the John and Mary Parsons (nee Broadhurst at Lullington are one and the same family that appeared in the Sibson Registers in 1793 are as follows.
      The Parsons Family of Upton in the Parish of Sibson had a close relationship to the Family of John Spencer. John Spencer married and lived at Clifton Campville from 1794 until 1818 although he had worked in Upton in 1793 at the farm of Mr. Tabbener obtaining legal settlement there. The parishes of Clifton Campville and Lullington are contiguous.
      After their marriage John and Mary baptized 2 Children in 1790 and 1792, there is no activity by them in the registers after 1792.
      There was also a Chapman Family farming in the Lullington area at this period.
      ********************************************************************** ************************
      John Parsons does not appear to have been born in Lullington although he witnessed a marriage of William Parsons to Amey Dawes there in 1788, likely his brother. William at that time was from Tamworth.

      The poor law records for Lullington will be accessed in due course if they survive to check for settlement certificates.
