John was baptised 5 February 1762 at Drinkstone, Suffolk. He was the son of Charles Punchard and Susan Stedman. [1]

Research Notes

Baptism: original birth place given was Little Wratting - no baptism c1761 found; 1762 Drinkstone baptism ties in with his brother's baptism in Drinkstone and is nearer to their parents' place of marriage, Rattlesden; parents both described as 'of Drinkstone' on their marriage license

1799-Witnesses at marriage James Chinnery/John

John had been attached as a son of Charles Punchard (abt.1729-1789) but his father appears to be a different Charles (see notes on his profile).
