John Casborn, Parish Clerk of Meldreth

By Jon Casbon on 17/02/2017 at 15:46

I'm trying to find out more about this man. I've found 2 references to him in FHL microfilm of parish registers: 18 May 1791 reference to a plot of land and occupation of a cottage, and 4 Jan 1796 burial record, age 75. Based on his age, I'm guessing this is John Casborn, baptised in Orwell 1721. I believe he might be the same man who married Ann Chamberlain 18 Jan 1742/3 in Wimpole. Are there any other records that might might indicate when he was appointed Parish Clerk, or give more insight into his activities? Thanks in advance!
