In Reply to: Parents of William Moorhouse m. Mary Sefton 1773 ? by Susan Roberts of 307

I have found two more births which I think may belong to William Moorhouse and Mary (Sefton).(1)William Moorhouse b/ 8 Sept.1774 at Pontefract and (2)John Moorhouse b/ 16 Sept.1776 at Pontefract.If we include these two males in the family it makes William the seventh son ..which fits in with his naming of his son William Septimus de Septimo (the seventh son of the seventh son)..Therefore it seems William Moorhouse and Mary Sefton may have had 12 children , but Robert and George may have died while still young so would only be shown as 10 surviving children at the time of someones research.Can anyone else verify this? I've been trying to use naming patterns to help with possible parents. Sue
