He died at the age of 83 and was buried in Bitton, Gloucestershire on 27 May 1816. John made a will in 1815. He left bequests to his daughter, Catherine, friend, Thomas Slater, daughter, Rachel, wife of Thomas Young, sister, Ann Davis, neice, Mary Hawkins, widow and daughter in Law, Mary Wright, widow.
It's difficult to be confident about his parents being born in
London, as the on-line coverage of Hanham, Oldland and some Bristol parishes is patchy for the early 1700s.
