I have a copy of the Parish Register page for my four Greats Grandfather:

20 Mar 1734/35 Sammuell son of John ALVEY baptised WOODBOROUGH NTT
There is a later entry:
18 Nov 1737 Henry son of John ALVEY baptised WOODBOROUGH NTT

My problem is which of the several Johns around at the time was their father.

Samuel married Mary HEARSON 04 Oct 1762 in WOODBOROUGH NTT and had children:
08 Jul 1764 Ann WOODBOROUGH
22 DEC 1765 Samuel WOODBOROUGH (It is he who continues this line down to me)

So to the possible John - Father of Samuel:

1) 07 Dec 1719 John ALVEY of EPPERSTONE = Elizabeth OXLEY of BURTON JOYCE at BURTON JOYCE
As far as I have determined they had children:
28 Jan 1728 John d. of John & Elizabeth WOODBOROUGH (presume died due to later birth)
25 Apr 1731 Saray (Sarah) d. of John & Elizabeth WOODBOROUGH
09 Jul 1732 John s. of John & Elizabeth WOODBOROUGH
10 Aug 1733 Mary d. of John & Elizabeth WOODBOROUGH
Note: all children are recorded "of John & Elizabeth" which Samuel and Henry are not.
And the time till the first child (9 years) seems unusually long.

2) 28 Apr 1735 John ALVEY = Anne HILL at DERBY
This is really tight on the date as Samuel would have been born before the marriage, but it could have been due to location issues Notts vs. Derby
Also Samuel named his first child Ann - perhaps after his mother?

3) 10 Feb 1731/32 John ALVEY = Sarah COOPER at OXTON
Oxton is not too far away - but - I do find them having children in GEDLING

There is another John & Elizabeth having children in EPPERSTONE at this time but I believe this to be a different family.
Also there is a John & Grace also in EPPERSTONE but both died before Samuel's birth.

So that is my problem - which John - or have I missed one? :(

Any thoughts or ideas?
