According to Margaret Dickins in "A Little History of Cherington" after the marriage to Ann Timms, daughter of John Timms of Ascot, they lived in the new house (the Upper House) in Cherington built by his father. Anthony inherited all of his father's estate and money from his uncles. His wife Ann also had an inheritance. They apparently had five sons and three daughters. I have only found the baptism for one.

The parish record for her reads: Margaret the daughter of William Dickins was born October the 23rd was baptised October the 27th.
Note N491 Index
In the book, "A Small History of Cherrington" by Margaret Dickens, she says that Ann was the daughter of John Timms of Ascott. There is an Ann Timmes, daughter of John Timmes of Ascott, baptised on April 14, 1695. For the moment, I have made it her and included her sister as well. As well, Irene Connelly agrees.
Note N493 Index
I have put her in as a child of this couple for two reasons. First the entry was Anne and then changed to Mary. Second I see no Stephen Jarret and May X married at about the right time.
Note N494 Index
I have put him and Fraunces Eddes as the parents of these two and others but admit that it is rather a speculation. I "know" from the Harvey J. Bloom notation for Sutton that they were married as indicated and had several children as indicated.
Note N495 Index
Initially, I wondered whether the burial was for him or his son who was also a Joseph senior. Now that I have his will which refers to his son Joseph and his grandson Joseph, I am reasonably certain that I have the right person.
Alison Potterson has kindly sent me his will dated November 22, 1759. In it, he gives the bulk of his estate to his son Joesph for life, and after his decease to his grandson Joseph, son of his son Joseph. If I have the dates right, that would be the Joseph baptised in 1740. He later married Anne Riley in 1773. The will also gives twenty pounds each to his grand daughters Ann and Sarah Jarrett, daughters of his son Joesph. He gives his son Stephen Jarrett only twenty pounds to be paid to him four years after his decease. He gives his other son Nicholas Jarret forty pounds in two installments. He appoints John Rouse and his nephew Stephen Jarret his trustees. That must be Stephen, son of his brother Stephen.

She is said to be of Brize Norton in Margaret Dickens' book.

The MI reads "in the memory of Anthony Dickens, Esq. of Lincoln's Inn Fields, London. He was the eldest son of Mr. William Dickens and Mrs. Sarah Dickens and more than 30 year on of the Protonotaries of the Court of Common Pleas."
Originally, I only had his birth year from Alison Doyle. Then I found him in the parish registers.
Note N498 Index
He was described as a carpenter in the 1841 and 1851 censuses. Later on he was variously described as a farmer or a carpenter. In 1881 when he and his wife were 76 years old, he was still described as a farmer.
There is a marriage for a John Jarrett and Mary Webb in Cheringotn on February 5, 1835. Both were of the parish. The witnesses were John ?, Elizabeth Jarrett and Thomas Salmon. I will go with that for the moment, even though I cannot find a baptism for either one.
Note N499 Index
In the 1841 census, she was said to be from Cherington. In 1851, it was Cherington. In the 1861 census she was said to have been born in Aston Magna. In 1871, it had changed to Burton on the Hill, Gloucester.
Note N500 Index
This marriage seems to have taken place both in Cherington and in Bracheston. Given that Anne Timms married Anthony Dickins there on December 13, 1713, I tend to think that he was her brother. Why do I think that he was born about 1688?
