  • Notes 
    • It is possible that J151 is the same person as the child who is a beneficiary in the will of John Bonny in 1550. However this identity has not been assumed and this child has been given a separate ID of J223.
      The parish register of Kintbury commences in 1558, but there is no Hidden/Clydesdale reference until 1569, with the baptism of John son of John Cleydesdale. Further children are baptised in 1571 (Ellenor), 1574(Dorothy), 1577 (William) and 1579 (Joan). None of these entries give the name of John's wife, but it can be assumed that this is Joan, as both child and mother die shortly after the birth of Joan. One Joan is buried in 1579 and the other in 1580.
      There are no more Hidden/Clydesdale baptisms in Kintbury until 1588 (Richard), 1559 (William) and 1559 (Elizabeth). Again the parish register does not give the name of the mother of these children, but we know from John's will that she was called Margery. In view of the 8 year gap between the first and second group of baptisms, we cannot be certain that the father is the same. However John makes a bequest to his son John in his will, and this corresponds to a son John born to his first wife and the absence of a son John born to his second wife. It will be assumed therfore, as working hypothesis, that they are indeed the same person.
      It should be noted that in ' Hiddens of Hungerford' Volume 2 p.183 there is an erroneous reference to J248 which should refer to J151.
