Will of Thomas Stafford of Medbourn 1797
Identity of Thomas Stafford

Given the identity of Wilson Stafford it seems fairly certain that his parents were Thomas and Judish Stafford.
There were seven baptisms found for children of Thomas and Judith Stafford, but no marriage.
The will for Wilson mentions seven children the first listed being Thomas, it was made just after Judith died and names Francis (his first child with Judith) as executor. There is no mention of the youngest son William.
I have therefore assumed that Thomas first married Sarah Howlett, they had a son, Thomas, who died, and then he married Judith and had a further seven children. However, I have not found a burial for Sarah or a marriage to Judith.
No age was given in the burial registers for Thomas or Judith.
Only one suitable baptism was identified, to Francis and Mary Stafford in Ashley.
The identity of Thomas therefore seems reasonable, but with various assumptions made.
