Except the image of a baptism of a Mildred at Rocester 1778 to a John & Hannah Bayley is immediately followed by a burial of a John Bayley.

The baptism is just for a Mildred. It might not be the right one.
There do seem to be a lot of John Baileys around. It might not be her father.
Step mother might have a broader meaning than we give it now,

We might be completely wrong about Durose.

From Millicent's will (more than 1000 bequests in 1843) she appears very well off and, as a housekeeper, she would not have earned that sort of money; so she must have inherited something.  Three years after her death there is another document repaying a debt owed to her of 2,700.  That is something like 1/4 million in today's money.
