It can be seen from JL O'Connor's book 'Hearts of Oak' that Judith HOGGART, daughter of the above testator, married William WELFORD in Ugthorpe on the 15th November 1812 (the children of this match are also shown).  Three days later they were married again, on the 18th Nov 1812, by Daniel Duck at the C of E church at Danby.  This line - the WELFORD family of America House - are said to be known for supplying Cleveland Bay horses to the Royal Family.
