Thanks for your response. I've searched the FreeBMD myself and came up with
more than one entry. As well as the one you cite, there is also Richard
RODGMAN, 2nd Qtr 1840, Barnstaple, Vol 10, Pg 20. Either could be him, or
My Richard RODGMAN was always known as Richard Johns RODGMAN/RODGMENT, I
believe so as not to confuse him with other Richard RODGMANs in the family,
and I had expected his death to be recorded that way as well.
I have a list of certificates I am going to order from the GRO, but being on
a pension, I have to do these a few at a time and just sent in my last order
less than a week ago. Richard will be on my next order.
In the meantime, what I was really looking for was confirmation that a
Richard RODGERMAN was or was not baptised in Westleigh 20 Mar 1744, as I
have a record of his baptism in Bideford 19 Sep 1790. As he died before the
1941 Census, I do not have any way of knowing if my Richard was born in
Bideford or Westleigh. The other researcher whose information differs with
mine cannot substantiate where he got his information from, and I have been
unable to find a Richard baptised in Westleigh as stated above.
Thanks for taking time to look this up. If you have access to parish
registers for Westleigh, I'd really like to hear back from you as to whether
or not you find a baptism for Richard ROGERMAN on the 20th of Mar 1744.

It would probably be worth your while to send for the certificate from
