    Notes 
    • I had thought John was the son of William Williscroft and Elizabeth Day christened at Colton in 1776. However, this child most likely died as an infant and was buried at Rugeley in the December 1776. Was John another son who the family forgot to baptise or is he from a different branch. Non of the records I have had sight of say he was from Colton. The couple married in Colwich and this is where they returned prior to their deaths. They were living in Colton following their marriage until about 1814 where their older children were christened. The children were parish apprentices at a young age as the oveseers of Colwich thought they were liable to become a ‘burden’ on the parish. Part of Colton village was in the Colwich Parish at the time.
