  1. According to Vere Langford Oliver, Francis Watson was the son of James Watson (1740-c. 1799). Two other sons of James Watson (1740-c. 1799) are reported by Oliver to have been Thomas and James, sons of his housekeeper Winifred Ann Olton: it is ambiguous from Oliver whether Francis was also the son of Winifred Ann Olton, although Francis was described in the summary of James Watson's( 1740-c.1799) will as his natural son. Francis Watson's widow Jane Margaret (nee Thomas) died aged 84 at East Ham in 1895.
