Possibly to add to the confusion , there is in the 1851
census in Kilkhampton a Richard Found b Woolsery , 69 , with wife Bridget , aged 78, b
Morwenstow . He is a carrier and they have no children with them . Richard Found
married in Bideford , in 1784 , Joanna Folly . There is a bapt of a Richard Found in
Woolsery in 1786 son of Richard and Joan . and a son William bapt Woolsery 1788 , and a
daughter Elizabeth b Woolsery 1792 same parents , and George bapt Woolsery 1807 . And the
bapt of John Fry Found in Bideford in 1811 . son of Richard and Mary .
There is a John Found in the 1841 census living in
Appledore with wife Dorothy , sons James, 23, with the word “ cripple” crossed out ,
Richard, 14, and Mary Ann aged 10 . This John is probably the son of Richard and Joan
bapt Woolsery 1790 he and Dorothy `Gouman` married in Parkham in 1817.
There is also a Zacharia Found, 40 , labourer , living in
the Cottage in the wood , which is probably a lot more romantic sounding than was the
reality , with wife Sally , and children James , 14, Eliza,9 , Susan, 6 and Mary , 3.
Using familysearch and starting in 1750 , the first bapt
in Woolsery is of Grace dau of Richard and Grace . Richard Found and Grace Wood married
in Woolsery in 1750 .
It would seem from this , that the name Found is perfectly
clear and recorded as such from the mid 1800s ..........not sure where that leaves your
Vone /Vaughan . Whether they are Cornish or Devon , isn`t clear , but Woolsery and
Parkham are very close to the Cornish border .
And interestingly doing a slight side step from a will
search , I find Grace Found at the Sessions at Easter 1813 Cornwall , convicted to a week
in prison for larceny .
