Note: I’m putting her as widow to Richard because this is after Richard’s death and before Roger’s birth and in those days it would have been thought that she needed a husband. Also, these were the only Hotchkiss listings in the parish at that time.

Note: If the Alice who married John Speed was not the widow of Richard, then this could be her burial, but it is 22 miles away as well. I think the remarriage is more likely, but either way, there are no earlier records to tell us which it is.
