bullet  General Notes:

Mike Fenn writes 27 May 2018.
A Mary Smith is listed in Barking parish register as baptised 17 (?) September 1686 daughter of John Smith and Mary his wife. The date in Sept is difficult to decipher. This ties in perfectly with our family. The Bildeston entry on several Ancestry trees is a complete red herring. John Smith married Mary Parker in Barking in 1685 (Findmypast - Boyds). There are plenty of Smith burials in Barking.

Mary Fenn buried at St Mary Debenham 20 May 1704 wife of Robert.
This entry must be accounted for but the Will of Robert ffynn of Baylham 1749 goes a considerable way to doing this.
