    Notes 
    • There are two significant anomalies to note in the children listed.

      First: James and Anne were christened in Belper, Derbyshire, England.

      Second: Thomas, Hannah, and John all have the same christening date.

      I have a scenario that makes some sense of this, though it may be creative fiction until it is proven. Note the consistent two years between births. With the exception of one three year gap, they had a child every two years like clockwork. The two children from Belper fit right into this scenario.

      It also make sense that if they moved to Belper and then back to Leeds, when they went to christen John, the parish would confirm their records of the family. Were they not able to find Hannah and Thomas Jr's records, it would make sense they would re-christen them at the same time as John was christened. This is further supported by the fact that Thomas Jr actually has two christening dates, one that is the same as John's, and another in 1821.

      For this scenario to work, it would really make more sense for James and Anne to be a part this Thomas and Eliza Toppham's family.

      This scenario could easily be disproved, but it is my current working theory.
