The red text above in the transcribed Will of John Crockett fish, 

highlights more evidence that the Charlotte Winn's 3 children are the children of John Crockett fish, he effectively 

takes full responsibility for the maintenance, education and support for HIS 3 children.


John Fish Winn otherwise Tremayne, born 15 March 1873
Herbert Archibald Fish Winn Otherwise Tremayne born 28 November 1874
Ethel Maud Mary Fish Winn otherwise Tremayne born 25 November 1876






The birth certificate above of Lawrence John Fish Winn and Herbert Archibald Fish Winn indicating their mother was a single women and no father mentioned, indicates that John Crockett Fish was the father as the child takes Fish into his name, and all the children gets maintenance, support and education payments after John Crockett Fish dies in 1889 ( Will above). John Crockett Fish takes full responsibility for the costs of raising the 3 children of Charlotte Winn later Charlotte Tremayne.















Dr John Crockett Fish was also buried in the same grave as Rev John Dent Fish his brother in 1889. In 1861 the registered owners of the grave were Wilkinson Dent & John Crockett Fish and the potential heirs would have been the executors of the last of these two people to die.  In this case Wilkinson Dent died in 1886 and Dr John Crocket Fish died in 1889. The executor of John Crockett Fish's will was his nephew John Dent of 8 Fitzroy Square, London, United Kingdom.
