THG was the son of James and Elizabeth , born 1829 and Jane Shambrook was the dau of Henry , bapt Bideford 1832 . Surely they were married ???? They lived in Abbotsham and he was a builder .
Please tell me the marriage is staring me in the face !!!

Hi, I wonder if any one has access to the Barnstaple burials for the 1st Q 1865.
John Hammett is in the GRO as having died there, I would like to know
if any thing is said in the records as to his occupation, the John
Hammett I am interested in was born 1808 Plymouth and baptized at
Alverstoke Hampshire in 1813, his father William was serving in the
North Devon Militia.
John Hammett joined the Royal Marines in 1829, and was discharged
UNFIT in 1832 … after that I loose track of him, and hope the 1865
John is my man.
Any thing that may link them together would be most welcome ….
Thanks in advance …. Peter Hammett in UK
Free BMD marriages - (Apr/June 1853) St. Thomas Registration District, Vol., 5b, p. 138 - John Bolt or Henry Hardy marriage to Mary Gooding or Mary Ann Burnell Reeves
I would like to verify who married who:
I think John Bolt married Mary Gooding and Henry Hardy married Mary Ann Burnell Reeves.
Is Mary Gooding the widow of Esaias Gooding who died in 1841 in East Budleigh?
Thanks for any help.

Hi , looking for something else and found this entry in Coroners Inquests for Norfolk . NROcat reference .
12. Charles Mitchel/Mitchell, of Uffculme, Devon, age 33. January 1693, Pockthorpe. On 31 December he went out of the house of Thomas B-----t, alehousekeeper, St Simon and Jude and fell into the river at the key by Fye Bridge and drowned. Verdict: Misfortune. Fragile. Dirty and incomplete.
I feel sure dirty and incomplete refers to the document not the poor drowned Mr Mitchell .
Might be of interest to someone

LORING, Mavis Evelyn, formerly REINKE, nee LORENSEN
Late of Toowoomba and formerly of Caloundra, passed away peacefully on 1st
April, 2019, aged 76 years.
Beloved wife of Roy [dec'd]. Dearly loved Mother of Kathryn and Patrick.
Loved stepmother and Grandmother to her respective families.

be held at St John's Lutheran Church, 431 Bridge Street, Wilsonton, service

conducted at the Caloundra Cemetery, Queen Street, Caloundra, Thursday, 9th
April, 2019, commencing at 1-p.m. Burstows Funerals.
[Wilsonton is a suburb of Toowoomba]
Now I know that a Jane SMERDON married a Edward Peter LORENSEN in 1902. So
the above funeral notice must be for a connection to this family
There is a Probate [Trove] 9 Mar 1930
LORENSEN, Edward P., Pie Creek, Gympie, farmer, Oct. 4. 1920, Jane LORENSEN,
Pie Creek. R. & P. £3042
There is also one for Jane LORENSEN in 1944, late of Pie Creek
Mavis went to school at Pie Creek in 1948 then Gympie South State School in
1952. One of the sons of E. P. and Jane [SMERDON] Leonard George LORENSEN
married Evelyn May YOUNG in 1940, so my educated guess is that Mavis is a
d/o Leonard G. & Evelyn.
This is not necessarily Devon related but it could be.............
Is anyone missing a Thomas STONE c 1820- 1830? Parents not named on his
death registration which is a shame.
Well, I have stumbled across a Thomas STONE, a bushman [see Trove
Newspapers] The Brisbane Courier 6 Nov 1875 where a Thomas STONE, employed
at May Downs Station [that's near Miriam Vale] whose body was found in a
decomposed state. He was aged between 40-50 year, with money in his pocket
[so not a robbery]. With his throat cut, no marks of violence etc.
He was buried where he was found.
Another busy month. I particularly recommend the two articles about the "Admiral Edwards" Privateer, and the further instalment of inquest reports.

There is a marriage of Thomas TURNER to Jane TOLCHER on 14 May 1804 in Brixham. However it's a long way from Cornwood. I believe that this is the couple who went on to have 6 children in both Egg Buckland and Cornwood. I can't find baptisms for the children:
John Tolcher TURNER c.1807 Egg Buckland
William TURNER 1810 Cornwood
Elizabeth TURNER c.1813 Egg Buckland
Robert TURNER c.1816 Egg Buckland
Maria TURNER c.1821 Egg Buckland
Henry William TURNER c.1825 Egg Buckland
I can't trace Jane TOLCHER's birth. Thomas TURNER was bpt 27 Dec 1779 to Thomas and Mary.
That is all I have, after those births, they seem to cross the border into Cornwall. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm helping a friend and he went to the RO at Exeter but wasn't sure where to look and was told to go to Plymouth.
