John Cooksey of Ledbury born approx 1750 (General)

I am looking for the parents of John Cooksey, born approx 1750 in Ledbury.

John was a local 'Surgeon Apothecary' who in 1779 was described as a 'Master' and registered an apprentice by the name of Daniel Price.

John had married Ann(e) Haynes on 23rd April 1772, whose father Walter Haynes had been Mayor and Sheriff of Worcester in approz 1760.

John and Ann had five children, the youngest of which married the Hon. Henry David Erskine.

It is likely therefore that the Cooksey family were of a reasonable stature both locally and beyond.

But ... I can find no trace of John's parents whatsoever, which is puzzling, given the position in the community he must have held.

Any advice/guidance/pointers/help would be very gratefully received.

Thank you for reading.
