Whether it's the same John and Jane I am not sure - but children;

Freeman Cullum 1786
Nathaniel  "        1788
Stephen   "        1791

were baptised in Tibenham. There was also a John b 1778 in Tibenham -- then another John in 1779 Gissing! (Then Hannah in 1781 Gissing)

In the case of Stephen - it was a private baptism (may have been poorly) -- and it appears to say 'Jane, late Freeman' which may be her maiden name and hence the child named Freeman.

However Tibenham isn't close to Ipswich either - so it's still a mystery really.

Pure speculation - but Hannah could have been shunted off to relatives in Ipswich I suppose. But we shouldn't assume should we!
West Yorks; ---- Illingworth, Marshall, Muffit/Muffett/Murfitt, Barber, Sanderson, Townend, Barraclough, Lister -- and lots more. Locations mainly in Birstall parish - Hartshead-- Drighlington --Adwalton --Mirfield - Heckmondwike --Kippax - Sherburn in Elmet.

Ireland ------Cleary, Whelan - Nenagh.
Dowling - Monasterevin
Daly - Westmeath

Lancashire ---- Smith from Alston , Johnson and Fairclough---- Tarleton and loads more from Tarleton and Accrington areas.

Yes these are the family that I noticed.  I’d seen a few people who had the same people in their tree and they all have ‘Hannah’ born 1781 but every one have no information for her (marriage etc), did this Hannah move away to Ipswich I’m wondering. 
It is definitely a mystery, wish I knew more

Thank you for your help :)
