I am also looking for Thomas' parents and beyond. If you have found anything, I would appreciate contact as well. Do you have a source for the Christening of Michael?
I have Michael Jepson's mother's parents as John Eccles & Alice Mrs. Eccles. I also have Michael's wife, Alice Haddock's line back about 7 generations or so to Jacob Gabbott (Christened 23 Apr 1569; Whalley, Lncshr, England) and Mrs. Jane Gabbott (Born ABT 1570; , Lncshr, Engl)
I come down from the Senior James Senior Jepson, who is the son of Michael Jepson and Alice Haddock
