Hi Andrea & Val...

whilst I was looking there are ALOT of John Watchorns..lol... and in MM too.. I was kind of hoping that I might be able to untangle him and suss out which one he is and what happened to him, I know he was born in 1791 to George & Mary Watchorn in Melton Mowbray, I also know he had a sister called Sarah b. 1792. I guess I will have to try and create mini trees for these and see if i can track them.
