Hi,

I think I may have found them in Gaywood. Address says 'Field Lane' at top of the page, then 'Cottage':

Matthew Reyson or Reydon (handwriting not clear), head, 43, Ag Lab b. Gaywood
Margaret, wife, 45 b. Lynn
John, son, unm, 18, Ag Lab
Eliza, dau, 12, scholar
James, son, 10, scholar
William, son, 8, scholar
Margaret, dau, 5, scholar
Elizabeth, dau, 2

all children born Gaywood.

RG9/1254 ED3 Fol 36 p2

Hope this helps
Tanja
