Robert must be a sucessful farmer, as they have 6 children and 5 servants.

The "Mr" is probably significant, and its not normally used for othrs, but always is for John, and in some cases underlined too.  John is a land or property owner and Gentleman.

Probably John Dod never married Hannah, which explaines the choise of names on various baptism records.  However the baptisms (eg Anne's) do refer to "Hannah his wife"

Randle had property in Edge, inherited from his brother John Dod and occupied by Mr Daniel Roscoe.  This was left to his wife Anne and his two daughters.

Randle also had personal estate and property inherited from his father.  This was divided equally between his mother, brother and two sisters, but on the condition his mother didnt claim inheritenance due to her from her late husband.
