I guess you know about these but Cheshire has some great online websites you can look at.

Here is one for wills


and there is a project to put the parish registers on line as well


also on family search is a family tree that has John's bap as 11 MAY 1777 East Kirby, Lincoln, England Parents William and Sussanna

If he married 16 Aug 1802 at the same place to Ann Young circumstantial location evidence would imply he may be the son of William and Sussanna.

Have you checked if the marriage gives a location of where he is from.

But if you think it may be Samuel I guess you must have a source that I don’t know about.


Hope this helps
