  • Notes 
    • Apprenticed as a gunmaker 13 Feb 1723 through Charity School funds (implying parents were more or less paupers or his father had died).

      A John Mibourn was at Greendragon Court, Farringdon Without, in 1715
      Probably this is the John mentioned in the will of William in 1740 as being the person William is lodging with.
