Many thanks for the Ekins and Harle transcripts. Sorry to find that the Thomas Ekins baptised in 1683 is not the husband of Rebecca Harle but at least I can eliminate him altogether. I had not realised the number of possible alternative spellings- especially for Harle.
I agree the Harle and Ekins families are a pesky lot. The Ekins seemed to move about a bit. One family owned quite a lot of land in Wollaston in the 1630s though they lived three miles away at Irchester at the time.
Once again many thanks for your kindness. It is much appreciated.
