I agree Trish, I also think one of his executors is John Argent, who is another son
 "sons John Christopher and Thomas"
.......

Was the marriage at Barking? :-\
12 Nov 1769
Samuel Argent and Sarah Braybrook
Bachelor and spinster, both of the parish

There's a John Argent bapt Barking on 10 nov 1771 s/o Samuel and Sarah

Yes, that is the marriage.  So we do have a James and a John...

I think this family are forever to be consigned to the maybe, possible list.
I can't see enough evidence to claim them.

Browsing through St Margaret Barking registers there's a Mary d/o Samuel and Mary bapt 22 July 1770. Is it a different Samuel or has vicar made a mistake in thinking mother and baby had same name?
Samuel and Sarah  do seem to be producing children in rapid succession, Mary would fit between a hasty marriage and John. The Barking Vicar hasn't recorded age of baby, but all the Stratford ones were 3 - 4 weeks old at baptism.

Long shot but
There's a Christopher Argent who married on 7 Mar 1813 at St Martins in the Fields to Hannah King. and another (or the same) Christopher who was buried in Stoke Newington 4 Nov 1822 age 34.

Regarding James, we have a baptism at Bow, 7 May 1780, to Samuel and Sarah.
And a burial at Barking, 30 Aug 1780, James Argent, infant
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HY-6Q9S-871

If Samuel and Sarah had other children buried at Barking, and were themselves buried there from Bow, then they may have had son James buried there too.

Thank you, I donít know why I donít use family search more often. At one time there were so many spurious user added records I began to distrust it  :)

I think the Christopher buried in Stoke Newington is the one who married Mary Pammer in Islington on 19 Feb 1809 and had child Christopher William Argent bapt in Stoke Newington in 1813.

So we have two Christophers of right sort of age so far

Norfolk/Suffolk: Stone, Alexander, Tipple, Ingate

Executors of Samuels will in 1807 were John Argent, carpenter, of Mile End, and James Howard of Walworth, Surrey, schoolmaster.
A possible marriage for John might be
2 June 1794, All Saints Poplar
John Argent + Susannah Howard

Burial at Spitalfields :-\
25 Feb 1828
John Argent
Wentworth Street
age 56
