When Thomas Craggs married Frances Metcalf 13/4/813 Masham he is shown as a widower and from census/burial and marriage we know he was bc.1759.

It would appear to me that he married his first wife wife Mary Cooke 16/12/1784 Masham - she was bc.1762 and buried 19/11/1801 Masham.

They had a son Thomas bp.27/11/1796 Marsham (abode Ellingstring) and that is the one I would say who married Mary Greenbank.

I haven't looked at any of the trees as didn't want to get influenced by them - in my opinion whilst they all link together Thomas b.1796 and Matthew b.1822 are half brothers (Thomas from 1st wife and Matthew from 2nd.) and not father/son.

Thanks Annette, that sounds very plausible. Obviously the fact he was a widower is the vital info. I'll try joining the trees and see how it all hangs together.
