Now that I think I've figured out the mystery surrounding my Richard Crank ancestor, I would like to find records for his father and mother. His father was the John Birchall who married Alice Crank in 1764. I have found a bunch of John Birchalls born at approximately the right time, but I don't know which one's which. Any help/suggestions/advice would be appreciated!


Full disclosure: I think he was born in Winwick (or at least, he was married in Winwick) and I don't know how close or far that is from St. Helens.


Alice Crank, according to her 1766 death record, was born in 1739, if that helps. She was not my ancestor. A woman named Dorothy Crank (who I think might have been her sister) is my ancestor. John was a busy guy and had two bastardy orders against him by different women (one being Dorothy) a year apart (in 1771 and 1772).


Anyway, these are the potential ones I've found:

That's a lot, I know. There are so many of them!
