Life in Radway.

An enclosure map of Radway, created by George Salmon in 1756, shows a section of land under ownership of a family called 'Ennock'. This is the sole mention of the name on the map, so this could very well be where John was living at the time.

The Enock's were devout Quakers, and one member of the family, a William Enock, helped to fund the building of a meeting house within the village in 1702.

Meetings was held here until 1850, and since 1985, has been known as "Oriel Cottage". 

According to the Listed British Buildings website, the cottage has a burial ground to the rear. 

It is pretty certain that that many Enock's had their births, marriages and deaths registered here, and many graves in the back garden!

Notes.

1. Piece 0948: Monthly Meeting of Warwickshire South (Shipston [on Stour], Campden) Radway (1660-1827). Need to find a marriage entry for John and Alice to confirm these are his parents.

2. Piece 0979: Quarterly Meeting of Warwickshire, Leicestershire and Rutland: Burials (1776-1790).

3. All these names appear along with John Enock (1702-1790) in - Piece 0948: Monthly Meeting of Warwickshire South (Shipston [on Stour], Campden) Radway (1660-1827) and are listed as children of John and Joan Enock. 

I have received information from Anne Chapman of Australia confirming these entries, as well as a, William Enock (born 1716), Joanna Enock (born 1707) and Jane Enock (born 1714). 

Joan Enock's family tree (Fig. 1.) confirms these entries as well as, Esther Harris (nee Enock) (1697-?), Mary Palmer (nee Enock) (1698-?), Joanna Enock (1707-?), and William Enock (1716-?).

 4. 'Alice wife of John Enock of Radway in the county of Warwick Weaver aged about 73 years ; who died the 5th day of the 12th month called December 1776'  - Piece 0765: Monthly Meeting of Warwickshire South (Shipston [on Stour], Campden) (1776-1795). Alice is listed as John's wife on the marriage certificates of Hannah, John, Joseph, William, Martha and birth certificates of John, Esther, Joseph, Ann.

In January 2014, Ann Thurley of Sibford, sent me a Quaker tree (Fig. 2.) she had acquired from a lady called Ina Lamb, who also lived in Sibford. It appears to detail the connections between the Quaker families who lived in and around the area. John and Alice appear with the same information I have acquired (birth/death dates, occupation, descendent), but it also lists Alice's maiden name as Taylor. I have been searching for Ina's details so I can ask where this information was obtained, but unfortunately, I have found nothing. It also states that John and Alice were married in 1728

Joan's tree (Note 3, Fig. 1) shows that John and Alice were married 1729.
