[AMON622] Elizabeth (baptised 6th May 1722), see later;
Ann (baptised 22nd December 1723), married (at Barnby Dun, 30th October 1750) Richard Scales. This family remained at Barnby Dun;
Sarah (baptised 30th January 1725/6);
John (baptised 11th December 1727), possibly buried at Fishlake 4th June 1738 IGI;

Susanah (baptised 20th May 1733), died at Fishlake (buried there 19th June 1733);
Martha (baptised 11th January 1735/6), died at Fishlake (buried there 11th July 1737);
William (baptised 27th April 1738), married (at Barnby Dun, 5th November 1759, witnessed by Alan Hall, assisting minister, and John Brook, churchwarden) Elisabeth Harrison, both of this parish. William "Hammon" died (age 45) at Barnby Dun 1783 IGI;
"Susanah, daughter of William Hammond, buried at Fishlake, 28th May 1755".
A Mary "Amon" was buried at Fishlake (22nd September 1747 IGI). William "Harman" was buried at Kirk Bramwith (9th April 1758 IGI)
[AMON622] Elizabeth "Amon" (born 1722, daughter of William), had (presumably) two illegitimate children as follows:
[AMON632] Ann "Amon" (born c.1744, but no trace of her baptism), married Thomas Coward, see later;
Mary "a bastard child of Elizabeth Amon of the Workhouse" (baptised at Fishlake, 18th February 1746/7). Mary "bastard daughter of Elizabeth Amon", died at Fishlake (buried there 22nd September 1747).
There is no positive evidence that Elizabeth was the mother of Ann, and it is conceivable Ann's mother could have been Mary, Elizabeth, Ann or Sarah, any of whom would have been capable of being her mother. However the surname "Amon" is sufficiently unique as to suggest her origin, at the very least, lay with this family.
Elizabeth "Hamon" married (at Barnby Dun, 6th July 1747) Joseph Wilkinson. There is no trace of any children born by this marriage.
[AMON632] Ann Amon (presumed illegitimate daughter of Elizabeth), married (at Pontefract, St. Giles, 9th October 1766) [COWA631] Thomas Coward (see COWARD). The family subsequently lived at Thorne, which is adjacent to Fishlake.
