Thank you for that lovely long list. I will work through it and see what I can find.
Another book keeper sounds promising as does the Low Hill burial.
Now I must confess that I am a bit of an idiot. I should have thought when I typed the
last message that if I had a baptism and father's occupation for Isaac then I would
have had the father's name. The painter James Smith father of Agnes, so he
couldn't have been a yeoman. Another confusion (mine) is that the yeoman was on the
Jan 12th marriage not the bond. I have added it below. The £200 bond looks to be eye
watering for ordinary people at that time, I'm surprised anyone ever got married.
Marriage: 13 Jan 1788 St Michael, St Michael's on Wyre, Lancashire, England
James Smith - Yeoman, Parish of Kirkham
Agnes Parkinson - Spinster, This Parish
Witness: Thomas Smith; Joseph Park
Married by Licence by: Cornelius Copner, Minister
Register: Marriages 1785 - 1812, Page 12, Entry 45

Sorry to have given you false information. I really must refer to notes rather than
relying on memory.
