Weston family cleobury Mortimer Gentry
« on: Sunday 24 May 20 17:35 BST (UK) »
I'm looking for information on a John Weston he lived in Cleobury Mortimer Shropshire I can't find a birth for him. An article on the man is here. And he is described as Mr in parish records so he is not poor.
http://www.shropshirehistory.org.uk/html/search/verb/GetRecord/theme:20070202162343

John Weston died 1584 Shropshire. He married an Alice strong in 1583  she died 1598. Since they were only married a year Im presuming he had previous marriages?
Im not sure where he was born the article refers to rugeley and the possibility his father was called John. I cant seem to find any information on him.  Also he possibly had a brother called Richard Weston.
The information I have is John Weston married Alice Strong July 7th 1583 Shropshire. He died 1584 yet his children were baptised in 1585?
The 3 children are
 Sara 1585
Richard 1585
Fortune ?

I found them from the probate article on Alice (Strong) Weston  though found no birth for Fortune. It also lists Alice's mother as Margery.

John possibly had a brother Richard who possibly married a Joane. I say possibly as I have found records in same parish Neen Savage and Cleobury Mortimer.
Richard had the following children:
Anne b 1613 d 1628
Elizabeth 1607
Francis 1605
George 1610
Alice b 1602
D 1627
Mary 1599

Any help on finding More about John Weston and Richard possibly from Rugeley much appreciated.
