Any Richards desc. from Tavistock out there?
Elias Richards (1764) and May Gay (marriage 1) or Elias Richards and
Mary Ann Gendal.
Known children that survived from the second marriage Henry (1808)
married Anne Dawe and William (1813) married Ann French.
I come from John Daw Richards son of Henry and Anne Daw. His sister
the second Rebecca 1843 married in 1868 John Craze. The second
William born about 1846 survived and married. Others in family are
Ann 1844 and the second Mary Jane 1848. Charles about 1839 was a
sailor and he married in Ireland but had no children. There is a
sister Elizabeth as well.
Elias's brother Richard (1751) mar Elizabeth and had George 1775,
Richard 1778 (who mar Jane) and John Howard Richards 1781
Brother George 1754 to 1832 - don't know if he married. Sister
Susanna 1749, sister Mary 1757, sister Grace 1761 - nothing known.
I am not looking for research help only people descended from this
Also old family history of a Richards family from Devon (not mine as
we start in Cornwall) on my website
Other documents which are part of this family at
The Coat of Arms is at
These were photocopied from an old book for sale in a Devon shop
many, many years ago by a person who could not afford to buy the
book, but realized the value of the information it contained. He
kindly sent me copies. Thought it might help someone on the list.
