    • "George Young & Rachel Becon" - no other info apart from date.

      There is quite a large gap between Rachel and George's first and second child. I have browsed the PRs for St. Andrew's Church Canterbury for this period and not relied on indexes, and not found another child of theirs. However, I did note an unusually large number of burials of miscarried babies at that church in 1616; I wonder if there was an infection around causing this and if Rachel miscarried that year - maybe at too early a stage for the foetus to be formally buried.

      Then another, larger, gap. A George, son of George was baptised in Chislet in 1623 - need to check for another George Young there, and that it wasn't this one temporarily living outside of the city.
