NOTES

William PRITCHARD (born 1795) is given in the West Kington baptism register as son of John and Jane Pritchard, but no father is named at the baptisms of any of the other PRITCHARD children, though only Sophia, Job and Mary are actually noted as illegitimate / baseborn.

Although probably not the father of Sophia PRITCHARD (born 1798), it seems likely that Thomas COMLEY was father of the other 7 illegitimate PRITCHARD children:

Sarah KING (baptised 1789) and/or Sophia PRITCHARD (baptised 1798) may not belong here. However, if they were the same Sarah KING and Sophia PRITCHARD who married in Sopworth in 1811 and 1819 respectively (both "of this parish") then it seems possible that they do, since this family appear to have been living in Sopworth at the time, and Ruth PRITCHARD (born 1802) was one of the witnesses at Sophia's marriage.

Variant spellings of the surname COMLEY include COMLY, COMELY, COMELEY & COMBLY. The surname PRITCHARD is sometimes spelt PRICHARD.
