John Cherrington


John Cherrington and his wife Mary are the earliest generation of Cherringtons I have found.
I have yet to confirm more information about them.
The first four children I have identified: John, Mary, Margaret and Robert, were baptised in Wellington, Shropshire, between 1791 and 1797. The later three children: Ruth, Frances and Richard, were baptised in Bilston, Staffordshire, between 1799 and 1804.
