This is a reply to an old message from 2001 but I posted an answer as the person concerned may still be viewing this forum. I have only just come accross this information in researching a branch of my WOOD family from Lamplugh in Cumberland.
Fearon Jenkinson was son of William Jenkinson and Jane Fearon and was Perpetual Curate and Minister of Gnosall Parish. This may have been the reason why he was a witness at the marriage or he may have been related or a close freind of the couple.Haven't got that far as yet.Fearon married Frances Shepard 15 November 1802 at Egremont in Cumberland and he was born 1 February 1774 at Ennerdale in Cumberland.
Fearon and Frances had 11 children all born in Stafford, first 5 born at Eccleshall, 3 born at Chebsey and the last three born at Gnosall and he is on the 1841 Census for Gnosall... 1841 Census for Gnosall Parish Gnosall.
