    Notes 
    • *** IMPORTANT NOTE: ***
      This is a speculative association. We know that William and Martha Craxford had a son named Robert who was baptised in Gretton in 1761. We have fully documented the adult life of Robert Craxford, husband of Maru Cockerill, who lived in Huntingdon. However we have never traced his birthplace. Our assumption is that they are one and the same person. [2]
