I've found some North Moreton baptism transcriptions on Familysearch and surprisingly a group of baptisms for the Wealing family which fit Hannah, Joshua, Richard and Elizabeth Parrott. Parents Richard and Susanna. Several other children, one of them being Margaret. When I looked for a Margaret born in North Moreton around the date of baptism on 1851 census, I found a Margaret married to a William Avery with an uncle Thomas Parrott living with them, so I think the Wealing connection is more than a coincidence. Thomas Parrott is Richard senior's brother so would be the uncle of Richard's children.
Richard jnr is on 1841 and 1851 census as Richard Parrott, then disappears but no death found between 1851 and 1861, but a Richard Wealing pops up in 1861 and 1871 married to a Sarah Avery. No sign of Richard Wealing before 1861. Susanna is missing from the family home in 1841, but there is a Susanna Wealing staying with Thomas Bannister and family.
Have also found marriage between Richard Wealing snr and Susanna Cullum North Moreton on 6 Oct 1806.
So it looks like Susanna married Richard Wealing, had several children then married Richard Parrott and had Catherine and John, and her Whealing children adopted the Parrott surname. Although Richard jnr marries as a Wealing. However I can't find a death for Richard Wealing snr or a marriage between Susanna and Richard Parrott.
So the other possibility is that Richard Wealing and Richard Parrott are the same person. Richard snr was the oldest child of John Parrott and Ann, possibly born before they married. If I could find marriage of John and Ann and hence her maiden name it would probably solve this one. It does seem that Richard jnr and Susanna used both names on censuses.

Hi LizzieL.
Jacob's wife Elizabeth (Parrott) was born about 1814/15 in North Moreton

I think you'll find that Elizabeth Parrott and Jacob Blackford married in 1833 which would indicate she was a minor.

That would fit with baptism of Elizabeth Wealing in North Moreton on 31 Jul 1814 to Richard Wealing and Susanna.

I'm still thinking Richard Parrott used the name Wealing sometimes for some reason.

John Parrott married Ann Snell at Brightwalton on 26 Dec 1784. Richard was baptised in April the following year. So well on his way when the marriage took place. Maybe his biological father was not John Parrott but a Mr Wealing. But I can't find any suitable Wealings in Berkshire.

I think this is going to stay a mystery.
