Born around 1685, he married Anne CLIFTON in 1710 at Kirkby on Bain Lincolnshire. They had at least 8 children between 1711 and 1727. Between 1711 and 1718 the children were baptised at Miningsby, Lincolnshire. The latter four children were baptised at West Keal, Lincolnshire.
I have no details of his birth or his parents.
