John a man of some substance who farmed on Canvey Island
Thomas - who had at least four children
Abraham who lived in Leigh in the dwelling backing onto the shore. He is mentioned in landing charges in 1727 and it was he who bought the barge "Mary and Elizabeth" in 1744. After four marriages he sired his only surviving son when he was 70 years old
Mary - married William Stanes and had at least six children
