Suggestions for further research

The starting point has to be the birth/baptism and parentage of [H28] Mary Sprake.

The list of children may be incomplete, not least because there appears to be a gap of eleven years between Mary's marriage and the birth of their first child. And how does Gabriel fit in? He could have been born before the marriage, but if so why the gap of fourteen years before he was baptised? Or if he was the result of adultery, the date of baptism could only work if there had been an interval between Francis's birth and baptism. Conceivably probate records might sort this out.
