John Craddock was born in early 1807 in Great Wyrley. He was the second son of Walter Craddock from Cannock Wood and Mary Craddock nee Whittington (or possibly Widington or Withington?) from Norton Canes
John was christened at Norton Canes, Staffordshire on 7th February 1807. 
John had an older brother, James , born in 1805 and younger siblings  Robert, born 1808, Charles, 1809, Nancy, 1813, Letitia, 1816 and Pheobe born in 1820.
We are still trying to find out details of Johns younger life but John probably lived in Norton Canes throughout his childhood, as his parents & siblings still lived in the village in 1841.
