Footnotes

[1] A search of the original records needs to be done to make sure no Thomas Godfrey, son of Edward died young or that there are more Thomases in Cardington that could be our Thomas. A search of IGI extraction records does not show any more Thomases christened in Cardington or any Thomas dying in Cardington.
