    • RESEARCH_NOTES:
      1. LDS Ordinance Index has several children listed to William and Elizabeth Clinch of Bicknor, Kent, England that were christened in the early 1700s. The images of Bicknor Parish are available online at Family Search. A look at the actual images show that there were two similarly named couples have children at the same time: William and Elizabeth Clinch and William and Elizabeth Winch. The record keeper is very careful to clearly differentiate the surname spellings. Using the actual records we can correctly assign the christenings as follows:
      William and Elizabeth Clinch: [Note: no Frances is shown in the Bicknor record; also note of these children show up as child burials.]
      - Anna, 24 Nov 1700
      - Will., 16 Jan 1703/4
      - James, 4 Mar 1707/8
      William and Elizabeth Winch: [Note: none of these children show up as child burials.]
      - Wm., 2 Feb 1709
      - Elizabeth, 28 Dec 1712
      - Anne, 9 Oct 1715
      - John, 18 May 1718
      - Mary, 23 Apr 1721
      - Richard, 26 May 1723
      William Winch may have remarried or this is his son's marriage to "Anne" since there is also a chr. shown to him and Anne his wife:
      - Anne, 20 Jan 1739
      There has always been a problem in identifying which Elizabeth Clinch was buried 21 Apr 1716 with some assuming it was the Elizabeth Clinch (now Winch) chr. 28 Dec 1712 or Elizabeth Dancy who was William Clinch's wife. Burials are missing for the years; however, we do have the following:
      - "Elizabeth Clinch was buried Apr: 21st 1716."
      - "February 2d 1736 Elizabeth Winch was Buried."
      - "1744. Dec: 31st William Clinch."
      - "Nomr. 15th 1744 Buried Wm. Clinch."
      Considering the spelling and that Elizabeth Clinch no longer had children after 1708, the 1716 burial appears to be hers. The recorder did make an error in regards to the 1744 entries of the two William Clinches with one certainly William Winch; however, which is which is undetermined.
      No marriage for Clinches or Winches were found from 1690 to 1745 in the parish.
