As this family were non-conformist, it is difficult to be sure how many children Joseph and Elizabeth DUTTON had, particularly as neither of them appears to have left a will, although Thomas Decimus may have been so named because he was their tenth child. In addition to the baptism and burial records found, corroborating evidence that the unqueried children above belong in this family comes from the Dr Williams' birth registrations of Mary and Ann's children, and the will of Joseph (junior), which mentions his sisters Ann DUTTON and Martha wife of Job GREEN, and his brother John. (However, it is possible that the details I have given above for John do not relate to him, but to a different John DUTTON.)

I am less sure that Elizabeth and Sarah belong in this family. Elizabeth's approximate date and place of birth are taken from the 1851 and 1861 censuses, and in the absence of any evidence to the contrary it seems possible that she belongs here. Sarah's inclusion in this family, however, is based largely on memberships lists for the Witney Wesleyan Chapel. The lists for 1817 (the earliest I have found) show 4 DUTTONs - Joseph, Elizabeth, Martha and Sarah - and although no ages or relationships were given, it is possible that these were Joseph (senior), his wife Elizabeth and daughters Martha and Sarah. However, even assuming that Joseph and Elizabeth did have a daughter Sarah, I cannot be sure that she was the same Sarah DUTTON who married John Charles COLLIER in 1822.

Most of the children shown above went on to have their own children, and I have information about some of them. Those of Mary and Ann can be seen here - otherwise, please e-mail me for details.
