Do any listers have any links with PHILIP&MARY LANCEY(NEE HARDING)

who appear on the 1851 census for BERRYN ARBOR BARNSTABLE,DEVON.
NICOLAS L.MARGARET L.,children NICHOLAS,MARGARET,PHILIP,JOHN.

PRO ref.HO/107/1893 FOLIO 35 PAGE:27 FHL film:0221044
PHILIP LANCEY,born (according to census) 1842,which would make him the
same age as MARY HARDING,whom he married circa 1868??
PHILIP&MARY had a son FREDRICK GEORGE,born on 7/AUG/1869,at BERRYNARBOR
according to birth certificate,mothers details as follows,MARY LANCEY
formerly HARDING,fathers occupation TAILOR JOURNEYMAN.
MARY HARDING was born in 1842 in OLDLAND,BRISTOL the daughter of
THOMAS&MARTHA HARDING (nee WORLOCK).
On the 1891 census for BITTON(BRISTOL)appears the following detail:
121 OLDLAND COMMON:
THOMAS HARDING HEAD 80 POSTMAN WICK
MARTHA " WIFE 76 BITTON
FREDRICK LANCEY G/SON 21 SAILOR BERRYNARBOR DEVON
In 1936,MARY lost a sister ELLEN,who was married to GILBERT SHORT
a schoolmaster,they lived in BATH.Within ELLEN SHORT'S will,MARY LANCEY,
FREDRICK GEORGE LANCEY, and a REGINALD LANCEY are mentioned,by this time
MARY LANCEY had passed away.
My 2xgt grandfather JAMES HARDING was MARY LANCEY'S brother,he married
ANN STURGE in 1859 in ST.GEORGE (BRISTOL)and they both ended there days
in REDDISH STOCKPORT,CHESHIRE.
If anyone's research fits in with the above LANCEY family i will be
happy to give you an insight into my HARDING research.
Regards to all,and all the best.
