Notes In 1828, a Bastard Order was made against John, in which he had to pay the Church of England 2 shillings per week to raise his daughter Elizabeth. He also owed the Church 1 pound sterling and 8 shillings to cover the costs the Church had incurred in apprehending and securing him. Subsequently, in a document written by the overseers of the parish (dated 1832) that lists all the bastards they are liable for in the parish, it is stated that John payed the church 1 shilling and 6 pence per week for the Church's rearing of Gill Threader
