Other information; I'm not really sure what's going on with this family. John LEWIS and Ann BRATTEN were married in 1786 and had a son baptised with the surname LEWIS, then their daughter was baptised with the surname BIRD, then the next son was John Lewis, son of John Bird. Afte that, they are all BIRDs. The removal order confirms that it is the same family, but refers to them all as BIRD.
