2 parish register; Smallbone (2010), which says 1773.

3 Hampshire burials; Smallbone (2010). Although "England Deaths and Burials, 15381991", database, FamilySearch: 14 March 2020, Elizabeth Baggs, 1836 gives the year as 1836, "England, Hampshire Bishop's Transcripts 16801892," database with images, FamilySearch: 16 March 2018, Elizabeth Baggs, 01 Jun 1837, citing Burial, Hannington, Hampshire, Hampshire Record Office, confirms it as 1837.

Suggestions for further research

Ken Smallbone's work has proved invaluable and reliable, but even so there is ample room for independent verification. This must start with the birth/baptism and parentage of [E22] Elizabeth Wythe.
