    • If Richard and his sister had other siblings born in the 10 years before them, and after the marriage of their probable parents in 1607, then I can't find them.
      There are possibilities in Kirtlington and Banbury but too obscure.

    Notes 
    • ** As Richard's first child was born in 1656, it was estimated that he would have been born about 1630.
      Having searched through all the Berkshire parish records and on line, nothing came up for this time.
      After a while, a broader search was done on line and a Richard was found born in Cuddesdon, Oxfordshire in 1621.
      A map was consulted to see if there was any feasibility that he could have moved from Cuddesdon to Sutton Courtney where the children were born. The distance was only 8 miles which is viable.
      This means that he would have been 35 when his first child was born and 48 with the youngest, which means his wife would have had to have been about 8 - 10 years younger. Not a problem, we've had that before in the family history.
      HE WOULD HAVE BEEN ABOUT 20 IN 1640, so that may well have delayed a marriage and children.
      Can't find a marriage or death date for Richard and could only find a death date for Elizabeth.
      His son, John born 1661, is the link to further generations of our Barrett family.

      Had another look at the reliability of this connection.
      Someone from Berks FHS facebook page had suggested to another party, that if there was a problem tracing relatives in Berks to try Wiltshire, a neighbouring county.

      Have now looked at neighbouring counties and apart from Oxford, only the following 3 have Richard's in the time scale:
      Cornwall. - Richard 1627 father John
      Richard 1633 father John
      Kent. ------Richard 1627 FATHER PAUL
      Richard 1633 father John
      Wiltshire.--Richard 1633 father John
      Richard 1636 father John
      Problem is none of these have a wife Elizabeth.
      have to accept that many early records were badly kept, which could allow for the information we are unable to find.
      That being said, the originally found Cuddesdon information is the most likely.

      Have only put a 2 for reliability as after much research this is the most likely but cannot be proven.
