This was looked into over 10 years ago..... wonder if the poster here has resolved it...

It's interesting that it's a Craddock marrying a Chapman.... same as the 1791 Harrold marriage

And then there's George Craddock of Kingsthorpe, marrying Elizabeth Chapman in Newton Bromswold in 1742. And Francis Craddock of Wellingborough, marrying another Susannah Chapman in Wellingborough in 1746. And James Craddock of Abington, marrying Susannah Chapman in Overstone in 1792.
There must be lots of lovely Chapman girls walking the plains of Bedfordshire, Huntingdonshire and Northamptonshire...

As I mentioned in reply#2 he was of the parish of Ellington, Hunts on marriage in 1819. In 1851 living in Ellington he gives his birthplace as Ellington, age 59.

Huntingdonshire isn't the easiest of counties to research online as the LDS was refused permission to film many parish registers, and Ellington is one, so there's no microfilm to view other than at Huntingdon Archives, no extract on the IGI, and no transcript available from Hunts FHS. So you need to contact Huntingdon Archives for them to look for a baptism for him in the parish register as part of their Research service, for which there's a reasonable charge.

There's a marriage in 1786 in Stilton, 11 miles north of Ellington, of a Richard Craddock and Mary Muckley, which might be relevant. Or it might not!
