Ann appears to be the widow of Walter King, uncle of her 2nd husband. I am unsure as yet who these two Richards are. My initial guess of father/son and John's father/brother does fit by dates, any other combination of father/son Richards in the family don't have the right dates.)6,7,2

E. & O. E. Some/most parish records are rather hard to read and names, places hard to interpret, particularly if you are unfamiliar with an area.
