  • Notes 
    • Difficult to trace originally (2010)

      Did not marry at Longworth or other close parishes.
      Eventually found William and Hannah's marriage at Tilehurst.
      The record states that they were both o.t.p. but neither were born there.
      Hannah was born at Sparsholt, about 8 miles from Longworth.

      Tilehurst is a fair way from Longworth and Sparsholt, but given that their first child was born 3 years before their marriage, this may have caused them to move away.
      Mary is described as base born daughter of William Barrett and Hannah Wilkins.
      It would seem that Hannah was also pregnant with Anne at the time of her marriage to William.
