      I think that Philip born about 1782 in Frogmore was probably also a child of this marriage, otherwise a son of William's brother John (but with other children baptised Mar 1781 and Sep 1783 there was less of a gap to squeeze another in). See birth notes on Philip's page for my thoughts on this.
