Children of Nicholas and Elizabeth Dodshon

01. Elizabeth Dodshon

02. Nicholas Dodshon

c. 1705-08-07 b. Durham, formerly Walnook, meeting TNA: RG 6/1341, /1405. RG 6/1341 gives the father as Nicholas Dodshon of Shearborn; RG 6/1405 gives the parents as Jno and Frances Dodshon. I suspect that there were indeed two children named Nicholas Dodshon, born to two different sets of parents, but that the birth registrations have conflated the dates.
