Occupation.

According to a family tree made by Joan Enock, John was a Weaver.

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 1702.4

Meetings was held here until 1850, and since 1985, has been known as "Oriel Cottage". 4

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!
