Possible Clues to Ann Eaton Calkins ancestry

Hello Cousins!
I found a book at Google Books called The Cheshire Sheaf edited by Francis Sanders, William Ferguson Irvine, John Brownbill ( It is full of genealogical information relating to Cheshire. On page 58 (see above link), there is a transcription of the original marriage records for the year 1597, from St. Oswald's in Cheshire. It shows Rowland's marriage to Elen on June 23, but also a marriage for a Thomas Eaton and Elen Cormen on April 25 of the same year. There were, at least according to the person who transcribed the records for this publication, Eaton's in the same church parish as Rowland Calken. There is also a marriage for a William Kyrfoote and Ann Crofoote on December 10 of that year, which might be some relation to the Margaret that is shown marrying Rowland in 1624/25. Perhaps Ann was christened in St. Oswald's. Perhaps some of Hugh and Ann's (or even Rowland and Elen's) children were christened at St. Oswald's and others at St. Peter's. There is also an interesting discussion of the evolution of the name of the town Eaton. I haven't had much time to spend with the book yet, but thought some of you might like to peruse it for yourselves. It is available for full view or downloadable for free at Google Books ( Just thought it might provide more breadcrumbs on the trail.
