In your notes you say that John Poston born c1630 married Maria Walker.I found that marriage, when I was searching for the father of Guilielmi (William)bapt. 1660 who is listed as Johannes.However, I have not managed to find anything which links John and Maria to Downton.
Their son is William born 1686.However, I am having problems believing that this William is William who married Winifred (no surname for her) they are my 6x Great grandparents.I must admit the only William I can find is the one born 1686 son of William and Marthae Browne.I was wondering if you knew of another William Poston from the North Herefordshire area, as I am having a bit of a problem with the birth dates.However, the family names from the above seem to come down through this family.
Reason being, William and Winifred had their first child Hannah in 1694 which means they must have married c 1693.So William 1686 could not be the father unless it was legal for them to marry at the age of 7 which obviously is impossible.
If you can help me clarify this, I would be very grateful.
