Most of my English ancestors herald from Derbyshire, Lancashire and
Cheshire - not Devon! I have discovered, however, that a member of my extended
Ashbourne family of Derbyshire, Dr john Taylor, great friend of Dr Johnson,
whose childless two marriages left him to give his large estate to a 2nd
cousin once removed, my ancestor, married the second time, c 1750, Mary
Tuckfield, daughter of Roger Tuckfield of Fulford Manor by his first wife. Mary
tuckfield left him in 1763!
Mary had a full sister Catherine, married to George Mill. She also had half
siblings by her father's second marriage; John Tuckfield, dead by 1770,
Henry Tuckfield and Elizabeth Tuckfield.
I am trying to place Mary's father Roger in the tuckfield genealogy, but
there are several Roger Tuckfields.
I wonder if anyone can help?
