Dorricotts of Derbyshire

I am trying to trace my grandfather's line and have very little information so far. Grandfather John Dorricott (no middle name) was born around 1870 (location unknown, married Mary Sayer and had daughter Gladys (1896-ish), son Lesley and my father, Albert Joseph (1911). I believe John had a number of brothers and sisters including Ruth, Caleb, Joshua, Lydia?, Joe? and others. John and Mary owned a "sweetie business" called Dorricott's, well-known in Derby for many years. John and Mary began to have less to do with their families around 1892 when they and others left the "Open Brethren" and became part of the "Needed Truth Brethren". Any information about John's parents or siblings would be very much appreciated. Thanks, Hilary Dorricott
