John Wallworth ( 1695? - 1762 )

 

26.          JOHN WALLWORTH  (of John4 , of Thomas3 , of Thomas2 , of Thomas1 ) was born June 27, (1695  ? ) at Norley, Cheshire.  The Quaker record in the Cheshire (and Staffordshire) Quarterly Meeting says “John Sonn of John & Barbery Walworth of Norley” was born 27 day 4 mo. 1675.

This must be an error since John didn’t marry Barbara until 1687.  The Cheshire & Staffordshire Society of Friends listing of births is compiled from the separate meeting house records.  So a check of the specific meeting house record may solve this issue.
