In case somebody hasn't already replied:
Stoodleigh and Tiverton are adjoining parishes in north central Devon. Some
Tiverton records are on IGI, Stoodleigh records are not. The 1823 marriage
is probably from a DFHS listing or from DRO. At least I didn't find it on
I did find an interesting marriage in Tiverton. John Beer married Sarah
Cosway 19-1-1799 in Tiverton. This might be your John's parents.
Bere, Beer and Beare surnames seem to be interchangeable - I've standardised
mine to Beare so can't readily read what they were originally.
Hope this helps a little.

Subject: BERE of Tiverton
Hi all, your advice please
Where do I go from here
I have found, my earliest ancestor, John BERE born 1799 Stoodleigh, Devon
(from Census) m 1823 Tiverton (sent to me I believe from IGI) to Susan born
1803 Tiverton, Devon (from Census)
What was Susan's surname?
I cannot get to Devon until 1 Sept 2006 to look up in the Parish Marriage
Shall I purchase microfiche from Devon Family History Society
whom I have just become a member?
If so, where to I get a reader machine from? My local library have no longer
got one, my stationers do not sell them.
Looking forward to your help
