2.   Joseph BYSOUTH
Bap of Joseph 2 Jun 1734 at Reed, Hertford, England, "the son of John Bysouth, Parish Clerk, and Mary his wife" (ref fmp image & IGI).
This Joseph would be a better match for the marriage to Ann Parker (below) but the two Josephs are half-brothers and we assume that this one would have died before 1752. This assumption may be wrong.

9.   Sarah BYSOUTH
Bap of Sarah Bysouth 8 Oct 1749 at Reed, Hertford, England, "the daughter of John Bysouth and Susan his wife" (ref fmp image & IGI).

Marr 24 Dec 1769 at Reed to John CAMP; John was a bachelor, Sarah a spinster; both were of Reed; witnesses John Valentine, William Jones (ref fmp image).

It is believed by several researchers that John CAMP married again, on 15 May 1797 at Reed, Hertford, England to Sarah WHITACKS (ref IGI). They were both of the parish of Reed (ref parish rec). This second marriage satisfies the difficulties of the 1799 census.

In 1799 the Vicar of Barkway Thomas Bargus undertook a 'census' of the residents of Reed and Barkway. The following family was listed:- Camp - John - Labourer Sarah his Wife Joseph age 11 Sarah age 2 Susanna age 5 Elizabeth age 1 Mary Bysouth - Pauper 7 in Family.

Hence Joseph and Susanna are taken as from the first marriage, and Sarah and Elizabeth from the second. They went on to have many more children, who are not covered in this tree.

There is a burial at Reed of John Camp of Reed, 3 Nov 1833 age 85 (i.e. born c1748) which would fit (ref parish rec).

Assumed marriage here though Joseph would only have been about 17. A better solution would be his old half-brother but we assume that there are not two Josephs in the family

Marr 11 Oct 1769 at Reed of Joseph Bysouth to Ann PARKER; bachelor and spinster of the parish; by Banns; witnesses John Valentine, William Jones (ref fmp image). Ann was born c1748 (ref death).
