John was baptised 9 June 1608 in Shipley.  At the age of 20 he married Thomasina Coquor there, 9 June 1628. There were at least two children by this marriage, Ann (1632) and John (1633).  Thomasina died in 1641 and was buried in Shipley 17 May.

Mary Jupp ***   (1612 - 1651)

William was baptised in Shipley 12th January 1651.  His mother died when he was only 4 months old.

Susannah Baker   (1656 - 16??)

Susannah was baptised in Shipley 16 September 1656, the daughter of Thomas Baker (born Shipley, 1634).

They were married in Shipley 12th April 1683.  William was 32, Susannah 26.  William died there in January 1689, aged 38.

The children, all born in Shipley, are presumed to be as follows:

The records show Susannah having a child baptised 3 years after her husband's death:

Edward Laker was baptised 14 January 1689.  A servant, he was buried in Shipley 23 January 1706.




Nicholas Laker ***   (1675 - 1742)

Mary                 (1679 - 1749)

This Nicholas was a witness to a wedding in Ashurst in 1698.  He and Mary must have been born in Shipley because they are marked as "POOR" in the baptism records of 1701, and a parish only provided for its own poor in those times.

It should be noted that because of a tax imposed on parish register entries in 1694 it is possible that Nicholas & Mary were not married.  The parish register 1701 baptism does not say Mary his wife as on other entries. That tax was repealed in 1702.  The old workhouse at Renches Farm has two fields near it that are marked Lakers Field in the 1841 Ttithe map.  This was possibly land allocated to Nicholas and cleared by him, so that he could support his family.

Nicholas died in 1742 and was buried in Shipley 7 February.  He is descibed as a husbandman.  Mary died there in 1749 and was buried 11th February.
