This John is probably the son of John and Mary Ann WINDEATT of the Horrabridge tree. He would have been 16 or 17 in 1865 which seems a bit old to be described as 'a boy' (although we know from a militia record that a cousin of his was only 5'3" tall so it is possible he was also small and looked a lot younger). It's possible that this John was another, younger, John WINDEATT although I haven't found another John in the area of about the right age to be described as 'a boy'.
