Another John Alcott was living in the neighboring town of Nuneaton and his children are baptised there from 1589 to 1611. A John Alcott was baptised there in 1590, however, I doubt this is the same John who married in Mancetter in 1627 as a John Alcote of Nuneaton had a son John baptised there in 1611 (perhaps the son of John born in 1590?). No baptismal records are found in the Nuneaton records for John of Mancetter's other children. It is interesting to note that John of Nuneaton had sons named George and Thomas perhaps the George and Thomas Alcock who were part of Winthrop's fleet in 1630.
Several Alcocks are noted in Birmingham as early as the 15th century as noted in the following: Birmingham City Archives- Toulmin Smith Collection- ref. MS 3881/10 - date: Dated at Birmyngeham 20 July 10 Henry VII 1495
