    Notes 
    • The IGI states William Tunks and Elizabeth baptised an unnamed child at Grendon on 26 Jun 1796
      Could this be William he fits the bill.
      Barry Davies has checked the Register at Grendon and although an un-named child was baptised there is no corresponding burial entry.
      I can confirm likewise for Mancetter and Ratcliffe Culey - Sheepy Magna
      First Born, father's name, good bet!!

      6/3/2001 Bishops transcripts checked at Lichfield Records Office confirms WILLIAM TUNKS son William and Mary bapt 27 July 1796!!!
