Hi , and further to Terry`s email, you need also to look
at Pull, , Fall, Fole, etc and to look for the parishes which perhaps at
first don`t look promising but which might hold a pot of gold , like the
ones on the FODA website Discovery the NA website has no end of Fulls of
the 17th C of various parishes, Stoke Gabriel , Dittisham , etc so keep
going because they weren`t stuck in Woodland , they moved .

Further to Elizabeth's reply, Ilsington is not far from Woodland and people
did travel further than we think. Farmers would have traded at local markets
so people from various parishes would have come together on market day for
instance and pack horses would have been carrying wool and cloth over large
distances. If they were in the wool trade they could well have contacts and
family as far away as London.
I did find this document dated 1736 on A2A which relates to a division into
three parts of a property belonging to the Full family and, though it may
not be relevant to your immediate family, you can see how far the property
spread and the location of some of the inheritors of the property. There are
descendants of the sisters of the deceased in Middlesex and Lyme Regis. The
property is mainly in Stoke Gabriel but property in Kingsteignton, Bovey
Tracey and Henyock (Hennock?) are mentioned.
Have you tried investigating other marriages of Full and Crossing in the
Woodland/Ipplepen area in the relevant time frame? Families were large and
it is possible that they are brothers and sisters of your Richard and
Susanna and you might find that researching them provides a clue or leads
you back to Ilsington.

Hi, according to genuki page for Woodland , there is a 4
mile distance between Woodland and Ilsington , seeing that the ancestors got
to the US and Australia , I think they would have considered a 4 mile walk
something of a breeze . The Friends of Devon Archives has Freeholders
lists from 1711 and Oath rolls from 1723 , and whilst not everyone was
recorded on either or both , there are clusters of Fulls on both .
Perhaps you could note each village and Full mentioned there
and search in those parished that you haven`t already searched . There is
George Full of East Allington, for instance ......as well as many others .
