A Francis CRESSWELL married Rachel FRY 23 Aug 1821 All Saints, North Runcton
A FRANCIS Cresswell was Buried same Church 28 Mar 1861 age 71

These are likely to be Francis Joseph’s parents I think.

Added: yes this is confirmed by FJ and his brother Addison John Cresswell being executors of their father’s estate upon his death in 1861.
