  • Notes 
    • On the marriage of his daughter Mary in 1757, James gives his consent to the Licence, as Mary is still a minor aged 19. This gives his occupation as Tabby Waterer.

      A Tabby Waterer was someone who made the water marked fabric like silk. This fits in with the silk weaving and dying industry that the Chabots were in.
