William Hutt married Mary Vincent (Bush) in Woodford although his census records say hes from Oxfordshire more specifically Stadhampton. There arent any baptisms that I know of in that town although there are three William Hutts in that area in the time period according to the webpage Im using. William Hutt 1786 Forest Hill, Oxfordshire parents Eleanor and John; William Tant 1787 Kidlington, Oxfordshire parents Jane Tant and John HUTT; William Hutt 1793 Kidlington, Oxfordshire parents Sarah and Richard. Which one is my ancestor please? One does get married in Kidlington but that could be honestly either one and doesnt eliminate the other William in Kidlington. Thankyou.
