It is possible that Jacob Welford born 1765/6 in Dinton and who married Sarah Paxton might have been known originally as John Welford. On his death certificate - he is listed as Jacob Welford and he died aged 83 in March 1849. But the only Welford recorded as born at the time of his birth in the whole of Buckinghamshire is one John Welford baptised on Sept. 19, 1765. His parents were Thomas Welford and Elizabeth Howard. Interestingly, Jacob (John) was listed in the Posse Comitatus of 1798 living in Dinton with Henry, Thomas and William who were children of Thomas and Elizabeth Welford. By the way, Thomas and Elizabeth were married in Bierton by license on Oct. 6, 1751.
