I saw the name Stephen Masters there
There arent many of them about
I am looking for a Stephen Masters myself, who was the father of an illegitimate son in Harbury Warwickshire (baby baptised in 1828)
I dont yet know who this Stephen is, although I have a few possibilities, having said that I dont much fancy any of them. However, other names that may occur in his family, or at least occur in the families of Masters of Harbury, are William, John and Mary Ann.
Maybe you should start looking in Warwickshire too?
There were loads of Masters further north in Budbrooke, Warwickshire too, but I think I am about to rule them out of my research.
There were also some from Staverton, Northants.
But I also spotted some in Kent, Somerset and Dorset, which are very unlikely to be mine, but might be yours
