unknown Thwaites
Jeremiah Thwaites, in his will of 1711, refers to his 'cousins'
Thomas Thwaites and Mary Sammon. At this period this word
often referred to nephews and nieces and I have assumed,
for lack of any other evidence so far, that this is what is meant

He also states that his parents had been buried in the parish
church at Chelmsford but, although I have had a look at the
parish register in microfilm format, I have been unable to find
any such burials that I could identify as his parents.
