Many thanks for this bearkat, however my big questions is would a married man with children of his own have his father's name attached to his death register?

Just checked and this is not him as he was born 03 Oct 1630, son of Augustine.

Thanks for looking at this for me again.

Kia ora Cider drinker

I think I have them sorted now.

Indeed his birth would surely be earlier, although no doubt he could have been just 16?
Mary Shellot - was Shellot a middle name, or her married name do you think?
I have never heard the name Welthan before.

I am not at all familiar with the area so I don't know of the likelihood of one of their children being born in Deptford, need to check the distance, seems a bit odd.

I can see by all of this that I need to look outside the square more in terms of the names e.g. Cocke - Cox etc.

Many thanks for all of this.

Well I have made a right old mess of this, those are all births, not deaths.

But my question remains
Would Edward who was married and had two sons still have his father’s name listed, pretty unlikely I would have thought?

I suspect the Edward you advised me of is the one born 1630 as a son of Augustine?

Aaaah a little problem I think:

Less sure now that I have found
Edward died 1630 son of Augustine – St Mary, Chatham
Clare died 1638 daughter of August – St Nicholas, Deptford
Augustine died 1638 son of August – St Nicholas, Deptford
Anne died 1640 daughter of Augustine – St Nicholas, Deptford

Would Edward who was married and had two sons still have his father’s name listed, pretty unlikely I would have thought?
